Gin and beer flow from the separate plants at the Wild Island Distillery and Colonsay Brewery.


Our 250 litre still produces test gins featuring local flora as part of the botanical mix. These products, The Distiller’s Cut, are available from the distillery shop and limited mainland outlets. From the start of 2019 Wild Island Botanic Gin – High Croft – a succulent and beguiling spirit made using a mix of botanicals including some gathered on Highfield Croft on the west side of the island is being distilled on the island and distributed throughout the UK and further afield.


Our three core beers, Colonsay IPA, Hangman’s Rock and Pigs Paradise, are brewed here and enjoyed on draught and in bottles in the award winning island hotel, bottles in The Pantry and across the UK.


The business has been at the heart of the island community since 2007 and is proud of the support it offers on an ongoing basis to all the major events on the island.
