Scilly Spirit is being produced in Old Town on St Mary's, Isles of Scilly - 28 Miles South West of mainland Cornwall. Island Gin has been busy picking up some fantastic awards since it was launched in 2019. They have just been made one of only 14 Masters from 320 international entrants, scooping the prestigious Masters Award in the Global Gin Masters Competition and is a great accolade to have so early on.

The inspiration for this gin dates back to 1665 recipe when the survivors of a ship, wrecked around Bishop Rock, were rescued by bold crewmen in pilot gig boats from the island of St Mary’s.  Part of that ship’s rich cargo was pepper from Java for the Spice Trade, and so pepper is one of the 6 main botanicals (reflective of the oarsmen) plus juniper (the cox to lead) that make up this bold, vibrant Island Gin.  Gigs now enjoy racing for sport from this island, versus their historic piloting role, as the Bishop Rock’s majestic lighthouse shines to guide today’s ships. Inspired by the heritage, beauty and vibrant aqua green sea of this enchanting archipelago, we feel our gin truly captures Scilly’s spirit.

The sea surrounding the them supplies the Island’s water and features in every bottle of their gin, so you experience a little bit of Scilly in every sip!  Island Gin has a great balance of juniper, cardamom, a hint of orange, lime leaf and a warm familiar notes of cassia. On the palate it is full and rounded, with soft citrus and juniper on the fore, followed by layers of fennel, a fruity peppery note and subtle spice. The savoury notes of pepper and cardamom are balanced by a touch of sweetness from the orange and fennel. The finish is well balanced and the subtle citrus notes encourage you for another sip.
