This Spookily Spiced Gin is said to be infused with the ‘Spirits’ of Skye. An old Skye tale tells of a ‘Ghost Car’, and rumoured 1934 Austin, that travels along the old road from Portree to Sligachan, appearing only in complete darkness. Witnesses claim that they’ve been forced to pull over allowing the Austin to overtake, before it simply vanishes into the dead of night. It is thought that the ghost driver was a local church minister, who lost his mind with guilt after having been involved in a fatal accident.

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.

London Dry Gin

London Dry Gin is both a flavour profile and a production method. London Dry Gins tend to follow the traditional, classic flavour of piney juniper, citrus and spice. Alongside juniper, botanicals in London Dry Gin often include orris root, angelica root, cassia bark, citrus peel and coriander, among the core botanicals. The result is a dry gin that features piney juniper along with bursts of citrus and warming spice and earthy, dry notes from use of botanicals such as cassia bark and coriander. Nothing synthetic can be added like flavourings or colours and nothing can be added post distillation apart from water and a tiny amount of sugar meaning all flavours come from distillation.

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.
