Isle of Skye Distillers have created a limited edition (45% volume) 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 our directors, has served in the Parachute Regiment and has been in three separate theatres 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. They take their imagery and artwork from inspiration from the Commando memorial, near Spean Bridge which they pass every week as they deliver their gin to the mainland.
