Wild Thyme 909 is a limited edition bottling of our double international award-winning Colonsay Gin and has been released to celebrate the first batch to be distilled by Eileen and Finlay on the island. Each of the 909 bottles is individually hand numbered.
In Celtic folklore every house had a Brownie or Spirit, or in Gaelic, an Uruisg (oor-isk) to help with household chores. But from the island of Colonsay, tales of a something different began to emerge, tales of alchemy, tales of ALVA, a delightful, red-haired maiden, a very special Brownie with supernatural powers, a Gruagach (groo-ah-gak). 909 years ago, she somehow survived when her Viking long boat crashed on Colonsay’s unforgiving rocks. She took shelter at Tigh na Uruisg (tee-na-oor-isk), or home of the spirits, where she remains to this day. With an alchemist’s delicate touch, she transforms humble botanicals into gin. Not many get to see her beauty, but all get to taste her fabulous gin.
Smooth and slightly sweet, this classic London Dry style gin is a delicate balance of spice, peppery notes and lemon sherbet. Best served with premium tonic over lots of ice, garnished with either orange zest or a slice of green chilli.
