Wild Thyme Spirits

Isle of Colonsay, Argyll & Bute, Scotland
Find your perfect gin

In August 2016, husband and wife team, Finlay and Eileen Geekie, packed up all their worldly possessions, left behind the hustle and bustle of Oxfordshire, where they’d lived for over 30 years, and moved to their newly completed, self-build house, to start a new life on the tiny, remote Hebridean island of Colonsay.

Their new business provides them with the opportunity to combine their love of all things gin with their desire to create a viable future, living and working on this wild island, and, at the same time, make a significant contribution to the future sustainability and ongoing development of the local island economy and community as a whole.

Colonsay Gin

Smooth and slightly sweet, as if kissed by Alva herself (the Celtic spirit featured on the label). Strong juniper notes then transport you to a pine-fresh walk through the magnificent woodlands of Colonsay House, before the flavour develops into a delicate balance of spice, peppery notes and lemon sherbet; the latter lingering, as clean and refreshing as a dip in the clear blue waters of Kiloran Bay.

Colonsay Gin Wild Thyme 909

A limited edition bottling of Colonsay Gin, Colonsay Gin Wild Time 909 was created to mark the first distillation run at the Wild Thyme Spirits Distillery. Up until the middle of 2018, Colonsay Gin was contract distilled on mainland Scotland in Perthshire. It was always the hope of co-founders Eileen and Finlay Geekie to establish their own distillery on the island.
