About company

My wife, Hilary, and I set up our distillery over on the enchanting archipelago, the Isles of Scilly, which we launched in May 2019 with our “Island Gin”, which we are pleased and proud to say was multi award winning in just a few months!
In May, we were thrilled to have our distinctive, stand out Island Gin bottle awarded “Winner – Best Design & Packaging for Spirits” in the prestigious Drinks Business Awards! Then in June, we were awarded “Master” in the prestigious Spirits Business “Global Gin Masters” tasting, in which the judging panel (inclusive of the likes of the Spirits Buyer for Waitrose!) only awarded “Master” to just 14 gins of the 320 gins from around the world that were tasted! In July we also received two medals in the renowned International Wine & Spirits Competition.

Whilst we believe the above speaks volumes for our Island Gin, the strong sales performance in all venues (across Scilly and in retailers/wholesalers around the UK mainland) where our gin is listed is further testament to its quality and appeal, which also includes a number of Michelin star restaurants. Indeed, our stand out, beautiful and distinctively different bottle design, certainly generates “WOW” responses, whenever people see it, so we’re confident it would perform well anywhere.

It is also worthwhile mentioning that I personally have almost 25 years experience of working in the drinks trade, and so we are fully complicit in every respect and have everything in place to fulfil distribution off the island for exports, in case you had any concern about us being a mere husband and wife operation currently, and/or our ability to supply another country. We are fully geared up for shipping.

To provide you with a further insight to our Island Gin, in our distinctive 70cl bottle, as well as our 5cl, 20cl and 50cl options, do please visit our website https://www.scillyspirit.com/ and see our instagram account @scillyspirit
Thank you for considering us.
