Tommy’s Gin was created in memory of our late Father Tommy Wilson. Sadly,Tommy passed away in late August 2016, having served in the British Army during the Suez Crisis. However, ‘Tommy’ is also a generic name and term of endearment for a soldier, so we felt that it was very fitting to name the gin Tommy’s.

We donate a proceed of every bottle of Tommy’s Gin sold to British Military Charities.
Thomas, who is one of our directors, followed in his father’s footsteps and joined the Army. He served in the 1st Battalion, Parachute Regiment (1PARA) and completed multiple tours. These included, Northern Ireland, Kosovo and Sierra Leone and has served as a private Military Contractor in Afghanistan. Today, Thomas still serves with the 4th Battalion, Parachute Regiment (4PARA) and as Parade Commander of the festival of Remembrance in Portree. Military charities are close to our hearts and we take great pride in distilling Tommy’s Gin.
This gin was one of the first in the UK to be distilled with Poppy seeds and also contains other botanicals including juniper, coriander, liquorice root, blaeberry and sweet orange.
We draw inspiration for our imagery and artwork on Tommy’s Gin bottle from the Commando Memorial near Spean Bridge which we pass every week as we deliver our gin to the mainland. To find out more about Tommy’s Gin please click here.
Enjoy notes of the sweetness of Poppy with a small hint of liquorice, the tartness of blaeberries and a hint of sweet orange to leave a balanced citrus finish.
We recommend serving Tommy’s Gin with a Scottish tonic water, garnish with a wedge of lemon and some fresh blaeberries (Scottish blueberries).
