Isle of Sky Distillers have created a limited edition gin in memory of their late father Tommy Wilson. Tommy served in the Suez invasion and passed away in late August 2016. ‘Tommy’ is also a generic name and term of endearment for a soldier.
For every bottle of Tommy’s gin sold, proceeds are donated to local Military Charities. Tommy Wilson’s son, Thomas, one of their directors, has served in the Parachute Regiment and has been in three separate theaters of conflict, Northern Ireland, Kosovo, Sierra Leone and served as a private military contractor in Afghanistan. Military charities are close to Thomas’ heart and he takes great pride in creating this unique gin.
The imagery and artwork is taken from the Commando memorial, near Spean Bridge which they pass every week as they deliver gin to the mainland. The memorial is one of the UK’s best – known monuments, both as a war memorial and as a tourist attraction offering views of Ben Nevis and Aonach Mòr.
