Wild Thyme Spirits are located on the beautiful Hebridean island of Colonsay. A location visited several times by our Gin Scouts. The business was founded in 2016 by husband and wife team Fin and Eileen who have Scottish connections but lived for some 30 years in Oxfordshire.
The range includes a classic Juniper focused London Dry style of Gin along with Red Snapper a Gin Cocktail and a Bramble Liqueur. In addition to the distillery there is an island retreat cottage which can be hired for gin focused vacations including catering. The following is a 2017 review from Drinkswriter:
………….Their passion, creativity and sense of humour shines through. I also love that they have avoided the route of gimmicky botanicals and have crafted a solid juniper-ed true expression of gin………
