Debbie Strang, co founder of The Shetland Distillery Company said "This year is set to be the most exciting year for us, with a number of exciting announcements, campaigns and products launching. "We’ve had an excellent working relationship with Garnish Communications during their A World of Gin campaign, we’re looking forward to working together on putting our products into the hands of some of the best bartenders across the UK."

Nik Koster, director at drinks PR and marketing agency Garnish Communications, said that Garnish will be running the brand's first-ever national cocktail competition towards the end of the summer.

"We will be screening Gin: The Movie, the 'taste along experience' on the Shetland Islands and we will also be running original consumer facing tastings, truly bringing the Shetland Islands into spaces across the South of England and London."
