Isle of Skye Distillery have created a limited edition gin in memory of their late father Tommy Wilson. Tommy served in the Suez invasion and passed away in late August 2016. ‘Tommy’ is also a generic name and term of endearment for a soldier. Botanicals used in this gin include poppy seed, juniper, coriander, liquorice root, blaeberry, sweet orange.
For every bottle of Tommy’s gin sold, proceeds are donated to local Military Charities (they will be announcing those through their social media pages). Tommy Wilson’s son, Thomas, one of our directors, has served in the Parachute Regiment and has been in three separate theatres of conflict, Northern Ireland, Kosovo, Sierra Leone and served as a private military contractor in Afghanistan. Military charities are close to Thomas’ heart and he takes great pride in creating this unique gin.
Our Perfect Pour:
1724 tonic water and garnish with a large wedge of lemon and if its the right time of year some local blueberries.
