Saxa Vord Distillery
At the very tip of the British isles lie the Shetland Islands, where the North Sea meets the Atlantic Ocean.
It is a place of mystery and secrets. Of long summer days and long winter nights. Of dramatic weather, fierce elements and mystery.
Emerging from this remote community is the Saxa Vord Distillery, the most northerly Distillery in the UK.
It was formed by Stuart Nickerson and Mark Turnbull and some friends, who all share a passion for producing top quality products in local communities.
Given it´s remote setting, you may be surprised by how far these gins travel, but they do, and that is because of the quality of them. Using the best, freshest local botanicals and ingredients and a fine attention to detail, these gins travel well. Alot of that is to do with the hard work of the sales team, headed up by Graeme Sharp.
Mark, the head distiller, produces gins that are individual, fresh and clean. From the Original, to the seaweed infused Ocean Scent, to the orange scented delight that is their Simmer gin.
These are rare gins, from a rare place, made with a rare passion for the surroundings and the art of distilling.
We love everything about them!
