"In the wave of the gin renaissance, we knew what we wanted our first product to be – it was time that Coll had its own gin. Setting out, we knew exactly what we wanted – a smooth dry gin that that would create the perfect gin and tonic. One that captured the feeling of those warm summer evenings on the island, when the lighting is at its most magical – with sea and land bathed in the most beautiful hues of blue and green. To develop the perfect recipe for our first product, we turned to Colin, an accomplished chef who grew up on Coll. His knowledge of the islands botanicals and experience in producing spirits brought us to the smooth and distinctively accented gin – infused with 10 botanicals, including heather, bog myrtle, and sea kelp foraged on the island, along with several exotic flavours, including coriander, cinnamon, and star anise. Our Hebridean Gin is very versatile – perfect with tonic or other mixers, and also surprisingly smooth when served neat."
