OUR ISLAND

Our island is the Isle of Skye. It’s Wild and Rugged. But that’s enough about us…

THE SOURCE OF OUR PASSION – THE ISLE OF SKYE

The Isle of Skye is about as far away from the hustle and bustle of city life as you can get. It’s a place where time seems to stand still and the only thing that rushes by is the wind.

The island has a wild and rugged beauty that is hard to find anywhere else in the world. It is this unique landscape that inspired us to not only create our spirits, but also the name of our brand – Misty Isle.

If you ever find yourself up in the Highlands make sure to stop in for a visit at our local shop or Gin School and share a wee dram… or two.
