Wild Thyme Spirits is fast becoming the go-to destination for gin fans and island visitors alike, offering, not only, distillery tours and tastings, but also, luxury weekend breaks at their Gin Lover’s Retreat.
Owned and run by Eileen & Finlay Geekie who left over 30 years of Oxfordshire life behind them back in 2016 when they moved to the island to live and work.
Their multi-international award-winning Colonsay Gin is made in small batches in a traditional copper still and is a London Dry style gin, classically juniper forward, but bottled at a slightly higher 47% ABV to accentuate the flavour profile. A range of products is available, including, Bramble Liqueur, Cait Sith (an Old Tom style gin) and a ready-to-drink Red Snapper cocktail (like a bloody mary, but with gin instead of vodka)
Wild Thyme Spirits produce, in an open and transparent manner, authentic, premium, artisan spirits from our HQ on the Hebridean Isle of Colonsay that are inspired by the tiny island’s unique blend of wild landscape, varied coastline, abundant wildlife and ancient Celtic folklore, and to contribute to the sustainability and ongoing development of the island economy, supporting the local community wherever possible.
