Scilly Spirit Distillery, Island Gin
Producer: Scilly Spirit Distillery
Bottle size: 70cl
The carefully chosen, and ethically sourced botanicals are steeped for 48 hours. This allows all the flavours and oils to infuse the spirit. Once the gin has been created, we leave it to rest for at least two weeks to enable the flavours to meld and marry together, to create a smooth rounded spirit.
Serve a large measure of Island Gin over ice, garnished with a fresh kaffir lime leaf and a dried orange slice, with two measures of tonic.
Scilly Spirit Distillery is committed to environmentally friendly production, taking care of their beautiful archipelago. The spirits are distilled using a closed cooling system and we are looking to install solar panels so our spirit distillations have minimal environmental impact. Botanicals, once spent, are composted or are given to the local pigs.
As our bottles are so beautiful, we are sure that very few will be recycled with glass collections, but turned into lighthouses perhaps? In 2019, they won The Drinks Business Award for Design and Packaging in the Spirits Category and in 2020 we won Gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Design Competition which speaks volumes about how lovely the bottle is!
