New Delivery To The Isles of Scilly

Compact Electric Vehicles have recently supplied one of our Ligier 100% Electric Box Vans to Scilly Spirit Distillery, a company located in the picturesque Isles of Scilly… (Yes we are really jealous too!) This is a great example of how electric vehicles are becoming more and more accessible to businesses of all sizes, even those in remote areas such as the Isles of Scilly.

For Scilly Spirit Distillery, where the husband & wife team Arthur & Hillary Miller craft their multi-award-winning gins, the Ligier Electric Box Van is a great fit for their business. The van enables them to transport goods around the island, with it being ideal for short to medium-distance deliveries.

The van's compact size also makes it easy to manoeuvre through narrow streets and tight spaces, while its zero-emission electric motor makes it an eco-friendly choice. This means the company can make deliveries without contributing to local air pollution, a key consideration on this Conservation Area and Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

In addition to its environmental benefits, the Electric Box Van also offers significant cost savings compared to traditional diesel and petrol vehicles, making it a cost-effective choice for businesses on a budget.


At Compact Electric Vehicles, we understand the importance of sustainability and environmentally friendly practices in business. That's why we were thrilled to provide Scilly Spirit Distillery with a sustainable vehicle solution that aligns with their commitment to protecting the beautiful Isles of Scilly.

Scilly Spirit Distillery is an excellent example of a company that cares about the environment and is taking steps to minimise its carbon footprint. They also use a closed cooling system during their spirit distillations, and their botanical waste is either composted or given to local pigs. They have also designed cardboard packaging for posting their gin to avoid the use of plastic.

We are proud to have provided Scilly Spirit Distillery with a sustainable vehicle solution that aligns with their values and commitment to protecting the environment. It's inspiring to see businesses like this leading the way in sustainability, and we are delighted to support them in their mission to take care of the precious islands they call home.

Round Up

Overall, the partnership between Compact Electric Vehicles and Scilly Spirit Distillery demonstrates the potential for Electric Vehicles to transform the way we do business, even in remote areas like the Isles of Scilly. As more businesses embrace this technology, we can look forward to a future with cleaner, quieter, and more sustainable transportation options.
