Wild Island Botanic Gin is a celebration of the beauty and unique character of our island home, the Isle of Colonsay.
We set out to create a truly exceptional spirit crafted around the native botanicals that grow on our crofts here in the Southern Hebrides off Scotland’s West coast.
Crafted in a century old copper still at Langley Distillery, using 100% British Wheat infused with six native hand foraged botanicals growing wild on our island and a further ten as the base. Wild Island Botanic Gin is bottled in Scotland at 43.7% abv using pure Scottish water
The superb quality of our spirit was recognized with the award of a Gold Medal in the contemporary gin class at the 2017 International Wines and Spirits Competition.
Our second edition to our family of drinks is Wild Island ‘High Croft’- named after the fertile island farm land where we gather our Autumn botanicals to infuse this premium gin. When the hedgerows and trees grow heavy with our six ripe fruits, the croft air is full of rich, sweet, floral aromas, all detectable in the glass.
High Croft has a smooth, spicy-sweet, ripe fruit character. Best served with tonic, a slice of red apple and a few brambles.
RT @BaddeleyBros @thirst_craft created a bottle for @WildIslandGin inspired by the gin itself - infused with hand-gathered botanicals in the Island of Colonsay. The bottle has a watercolor design printed o, seeing it through the distortion of glass and liquid. 1ad.biz/s/g3lnu pic.twitter.com/V8DxZggNRe
