At the south westerly tip of the UK, husband and wife, Arthur & Hilary Miller established their Scilly Spirit Distillery on an island in the enchanting Isles of Scilly.
Impressively, their striking Island Gin bottle – taking inspiration from the nearby majestic Bishop Rock Lighthouse and the vibrant aqua green of the sea which surrounds the islands - was awarded “Winner – Best Design & Packaging in Spirits” for the UK, in the 2019 Drinks Business Awards.
In just two years 11 awards have followed, including the highly regarded San Francisco World Spirits Competition awarding Gold for the bottle design and Silver for the gin, and lately Silver 93 points from the prestigious IWSC, London.
Such attention to detail is equally evident in their dedication, as they both still fulfil every aspect of making their Island Gin, from the small batch distillation runs, to bottling and labelling plus packing and dispatch.
If you're seeking a truly authentic, delicious, artisan gin, with genuine provenance and the owner's total commitment, then Island Gin delivers.
Nose: a lovely balance of piney juniper, piquancy of cardamom, with hints of orange and herbal lime leaf.
Palate: full and rounded in the mouth, with lime and orange citrus plus juniper to the fore. Then 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, fennel and cassia.
Finish: a delicious rounded gin which fills the palate.
