Island couple raise a glass to gin’s success

A COUPLE who produce award-winning gin from their Colonsay home have secured their first national supermarket order with bottles due to appear on shelves this summer.

Fin and Eileen Geekie set up Wild Thyme Spirits Ltd in 2016 and have since sold more than 5,000 bottles, including sending their first exports to Canada.

Support from Business Gateway Argyll and Bute has helped them grow the business. Recently the couple have benefited from specialist marketing advice via the Business Gateway Local Growth Accelerator Programme, which is part funded by the European Regional Development Fund 2014-20 Structural Funds Programme.
