Scilly Spirit Distillery
In 2018, Hilary had the crazy idea to create a distillery on St Mary’s, Isles of Scilly where her family had lived for over 6o years. The islands were home for not only her grandmother (who lived until she was nearly 102), but also where her mother and father first met. Many of her relations ran hotels, restaurants, guest houses and were involved with Ambulance service and the church. Scilly is a very special place and together with her husband, Arthur, they started the process of learning how to make spirits and also to find a suitable building to create an Island Distillery and Gin School.
