Blackwoods gears up for 2017 gin and vodka vintage launches

Published:  27 November, 2017

Blackwoods has revealed it will be launching a new 2017 vintage across its premium vodka and gins in January next year.

Developed in partnership with leading bartenders, the vintage portfolio will feature new formulations across Blackwoods’ 40% abv and 60% abv gins and vodka, comprising Vintage Dry Gin 40% (rrp: £22) and Vintage Dry 60% (rrp: £32), alongside a 40% abv Grain Vodka (rrp: £22).

The new formulations of the range, which mark the first new Blackwoods vintage for five years, celebrates the latest harvest of hand-picked Shetland botanicals, using the finest quality ingredients available, as well as updating the recipes to reflect bartenders’ choice of the latest trends in flavour and mixability, said Hi-Spirits.

To mark the new vintage, a distinctive new bottle and premium look has been designed in a bid to recall the “vintage roaring 1920s era of cocktails”, as well as highlighting the brand’s premium character, said MD Dan Bolton. 

“The new design celebrates the 2017 vintage and aligns with the new formulation for the popular and successful spirits in the range, with the involvement of bartenders in finalising the recipes ensuring that Blackwood is up-to-date in terms of consumer appeal.”  

Blackwoods is available in the on-trade and through major retailers including Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Morrisons.
