A Wild HeritageNorse Vikings

The letter marque that appears on our bottle is inspired by the ancient runic alphabet adopted by the Norse Vikings.

For centuries, the Isle of Colonsay was at the heart of a key trading and communications route between Scandinavia and the Atlantic and Mediterranean seas. The Vikings used the island as a key outpost but in time, in the year 1156 in fact, they were driven back north by the great warrior Somerled, Lord of the Isles and from whom descended the Clan Donald, now MacDonald.

Today, the Isle of Colonsay bears witness to its previous occupiers through place names and important archaeological discoveries including Viking burial sites.

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.
