SOCIAL IMPACT & SUSTAINABILITY
We live in the community in which we work so we take Social Impact and Sustainability very seriously.
WE TAKE OUR CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY AND SUSTAINABILITY AS SERIOUSLY AS WE DO OUR SPIRITS
Provenance is everything to us at Isle of Skye Distillers – the abiding sense of belonging and community. Inspired by Skye’s dramatic landscapes and rugged coastlines we have crafted all our spirits to embody their place of origin.
From the beginning, our intention was clear – to craft sustainable spirits that capture the true magic of our idyllic island and we are more committed to supporting the local community and environment. We also work with local suppliers as much as possible to reduce our carbon footprint and support the Skye economy.
When you buy from us, you’re not just buying a bottle of gin or vodka. You’re helping us to do our bit to make the world a better place, one sundowner at a time.
WE BELIEVE IN CRAFTING A LASTING LEGACY
We are grateful to live and distil our hand-crafted spirits on the Isle of Skye and Sustainability and Provenance have always been central core values to us.
We constantly look for ways to protect, preserve and reduce our impact on our environment while continuing to seek ventures that can further help to benefit and connect our island community.
Ways our distillery works to protect, preserve and reduce our impact on the environment
Globally Local – Helping the world by supporting our island community
We believe helping the world starts at home. That’s why we’re committed to being a responsible business and using our fortunate position to make a positive difference in the world.
We believe that businesses have a responsibility to do good in the communities they operate in, and we are always looking for ways to use our voice, our products and our people to make a positive impact.
We are proud islanders, and the people of Skye are very much at the forefront of our distillery and story. Supporting our local community is a founding principle of Isle of Skye Distillers and we endeavour to support our island in numerous ways.
ISLE OF SKYE DISTILLERS – TOMMY’S GIN
We launched Tommy’s Gin, in memory of our late father Tommy Wilson. Tommy served in the British Army during the Suez Crisis. Thomas (one of our Managing Directors), followed in our father’s footsteps and joined the Army serving in the 1st Battalion, Parachute Regiment (1 PARA).
He completed multiple tours including spells in Northern Ireland, Kosovo and Sierra Leone and has also worked as a Private Military Contractor in Afghanistan. Today, Thomas still serves with the 4th Battalion, Parachute Regiment (4PARA) and continues to support the festival of Remembrance as the Parade Commander in the local parade in Portree.
We take great pride in distilling Tommy’s Gin and with every bottle of Tommy’s Gin sold, we donate proceeds to local Military Charities. With Military Charities close to our hearts, the decision to donate proceeds from every sale was an easy one to make.
LOOKING TO THE FUTURE
The Isle of Skye is truly a spectacular place, and we are fortunate to call this island our home. From the beginning, we have always been greatly influenced by Skye. From the dramatic landscapes to the stunning scenery, it is a place like no other.
It has inspired each and every bottle of Misty Isle as we try to capture the ‘spirit of Skye’ and share it with the world. We believe in crafting a lasting legacy and we strive to create something that not only we are proud of, but our island as a whole can be proud of too.
We hope that our story and distillery will continue to connect people with Skye while positively impacting our island and community. In time, we aspire to generate further employment opportunities and help our Island economy grow.
Our deepest desire is that Isle of Skye Distillers will become a lasting legacy, that will continue to be passed on and enjoyed by future generations to come.
