Food and Drink
Shetland Reel produce three award-winning, traditional-style gins that are distilled and bottled on the island of Unst. Arrange a visit to the distillery to be shown the locally grown ingredients used in the recipes and how it delivers the gin worldwide before sitting down to taste.
We would highly recommend booking a distillery tour before arriving. As a small, local team with orders coming in from across the globe sometimes they can be very busy!
