Island gin is carefully crafted by the Scilly Spirit Distillery in St Mary’s on the Isles of Scilly.

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, it’s left to rest for at least two weeks to enable the flavours to meld and marry together, to create a smooth rounded spirit.

The inspiration for Scilly Spirit’s gin recipe dates back to 1665 when the survivors of a ship, wrecked around Bishop Rock, were rescued by bold crewman in pilot gig boats from 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, plus juniper, that make up this bold, vibrant gin.

Nose

Lovely balance of piney juniper, piquancy of cardamom, with a hint of orange, herbal lime leaf and warm familiar notes of cassia.

Palate

Full and rounded in the mouth, with soft citrus and juniper on the fore, followed by layers of fennel, a fruity peppery note and subtle spice. The savoury tones of the pepper and cardamom are balanced by a touch of sweetness from the orange and fennel.

Finish

Balanced with spice notes from pepper and cardamom with warm sweet notes from the cassia. Kaffir lime delivers the subtle citrus notes on the finish, encouraging another sip!

Ideal 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.
