Wild Thyme Spirits creates premium artisan spirits from its remote Hebridean home on the intimate, unspoiled and naturally beautiful island of Colonsay.
Husband and wife team, Finlay and Eileen Geekie, are the entrepreneurs behind a new ‘gin-centric’ business venture, Wild Thyme Spirits, based on the tiny Hebridean island of Colonsay. Their plans include a craft distillery, making small-batch premium artisan spirits, linked to a gin lover’s retreat specializing in gin tasting weekends, all from their home and adjoining property on the island.
Colonsay Gin takes its inspiration from a mixture of Celtic folklore and the natural Hebridean beauty of the island. Our Gin is hand-made in small batches of 160 bottles to a recipe that is closely guarded by our special helper, ALVA, a delightful, red-haired maiden, who lives at the home of Wild Thyme Spirits – Tigh na Uruisg – which means Home of the Spirit. Colonsay Gin is all about a sense of place and the heartfelt passion of those who make it.
