Made in Portree and proud of it. That's the new and now available Misty Isle Gin.

Last year the Skye Times told how brothers Thomas and Alistair Wilson planned to set up  the island's very first gin distillery in the grounds of the family home in Viewfield Road.

Now they have not only produced their first batch but are already finding plenty of interested customers both on-line and through specialist stockists.

Launching the new gin on their website the brothers say: "It's has been a long time in the making. It’s become something of a passion.

"From our family home in Portree on the Isle of Skye, we have created a spirit which we are proud to call our own. Distilling this beautiful craft gin anywhere else but here on Skye was never in question. Provenance is everything – that abiding sense of belonging and community.

"Over time, we have perfected our recipe; a marriage of crystal clear spring waters from the Storr Lochs and the right balance of the finest botanicals. It has taken patience and judgement, but some things cannot be rushed.

"This is a special moment. We are delighted to share our handcrafted, premium gin with you."
