About

In 2017, brothers Thomas and Alistair Wilson decided to escape the rat race and follow their dream of setting up the first commercial gin distillery on their home island of Skye. Both accustomed to hard graft and long days, the brothers wanted to ensure their gins captured the true spirit of the landscape they had grown up around. Their 'Misty Isle' bottle design represents the mountainous landscape and turbulent seas. Their label accurately shows The Black Cuillin, some of the most spectacular mountains in Britain, while the copper foil elements of the label are a nod to their gin stills.

Old Tom Gin

Old Tom Gin is a style of gin that’s had a resurgence in recent years. Old Tom Gins can be described as being similar to London Dry Gins expect sweeter. Normally, sugars, honey or sweet syrups are added in the distillation or post-distillation to create a sweet style gin that retains botanical flavours but is underpinned with sweet notes on the palate.

Production

The Isle of Skye Distillery can be found in the island’s capital of Portree. The distillery is home to two traditional alembic style copper pot stills. All the distillation, bottling and labelling takes place at the distillery. Also located in the town is the Isle of Skye Distillers’ shop and gin school, providing visitors with the chance to distil their own personalised Isle of Skye Gin under the watchful eye of Alistair or Thomas Wilson.
