About Holy Island:
Sitting one mile off the North East Coast of England, located mid-way between Newcastle and Edinburgh, lies the historic and beautiful island of Lindisfarne.
Cut off by the sea twice a day, the island is home to 200 people and several thriving businesses, including successful boutique gin distillery The Holy Island Gin Company (HIG). Today sees HIG launching a new nation-wide gin delivery package from the island straight to your door.
The Original signature dry gin has been crafted to capture the spirit of the high tide using both the most traditional distilling methods and the vapour infusion to deliver a flavour profile beloved by locals and visitors of the sea-borne settlement. Carefully selected botanicals such as sweet orange peel and nutmeg have delicately been infused to create the perfect balance of sweet and spiced without losing the distinctive presence of juniper
Island local and Holy Island Gin Founder, Andrew Cowan continues to create and distil up to 200 bottles of gin a week delivering the taste of island life to gin lovers across the country.
Perfect to sip on a blustery evening, sat in front of a blazing fire, wrapped up against the weather in a cottage overlooking the sea.
