Blackwoods Gin Blackwoods is the original vintage Gin, made in small batches using a traditional copper pot still. Each vintage is subtly different, the flavor being determined by the availability of our handpicked Shetland botanicals. Each variant in the Blackwoods range is an award winning spirit. Our first medal dates back to our first vintage in 2005, and our various vintages throughout the years have continued to win awards since. Our highest accolades include a Double Gold medal at the prestigious San Francisco Spirits awards and Gold at the Gin Masters.
