MISTY ISLE GINS
Misty Isle Gins have been a long time in the making. It’s become something of a passion. From our family home in Portree on the Isle of Skye, we have created a range of spirits which we are proud to call our own.
Distilling this beautiful craft gin anywhere else but here on Skye was never in question.
Provenance is everything – that abiding sense of belonging and community. Over time, we have perfected our recipe; a marriage of waters from the Storr Lochs and the right balance of the finest botanicals.
It has taken patience and judgement, but some things cannot be rushed.
We have perfected our recipe, a marriage of waters from the Storr Lochs and the right balance of the finest botanicals. When available, our juniper berries are hand-foraged from various wild locations around Skye. Our juniper is then slowly distilled in traditional gas-fired copper pot stills for approximately 8 hours, then vapour infused with our botanicals.
We use 11 botanicals in total including; Juniper, coriander, grains of paradise, orris root, liquorice root, black cubebs, lemon peel, cassia bark to name some and one which is top secret and only comes from the Isle of Skye.
This results in our gin being Juniper heavy but not too floral with earthy undertones and a hint of spice, subtle flavours of citrus with a refreshing aftertaste.
