Colonsay Gin

Run by a husband and wife team the Colonsay Gin takes its inspiration from a mixture of Celtic folklore and natural Hebridean beauty. The spirit is hand made in small batches of  160 bottles to recipes that are closely guarded by our special helper, ALVA, a delightful, red-haired maiden, who lives at the home of Wild Thyme Spirits – Tigh na Uruisg – which means Home of the Spirit. Our spirits are all about a sense of place and the heartfelt passion of those who make them. This is a classic London dry style gin.

The botanicals consist of Juniper berries which are bruised and then combined with the other botanicals such as Angelica Root, Calamus Root, and Coriander. The rest of the botanicals are kept a closely guarded secret. They recommend their gin to be served as a Colonsay G&T with Fever Tree Premium Tonic and a twist of orange peel or, for a change, why not try Colonsay Gin with Poachers Well Florida Orange and Irish Rosemary Tonic as a hi-ball, over loads of ice.

The Whisky Shop Dufftown Tenacious Gin Batch 2

Mike created his own gin in 2016 to celebrate The Whisky Shop Dufftown's 10th birthday.  This is the second batch to be released following from the great success of batch 1. It has 10 botanicals so we obviously called it Tenacious.  We certainly have had to be.  It is distilled with the help of our friends at Saxa Vord Distillery on Shetland.  It's juniper led with citrus notes and sweet gentle spices from pink and Szechuan peppercorns.
