Isle of Harris Gin

Isle of Harris Gin is made on the eponymous Outer Hebrides island, using a selection of nine botanicals, including sustainably harvested sugar kelp from local sea-lochs. This imparts a subtly coastal, maritime quality to the gin, which also features juniper, angelica, cassia, coriander, cubeb, liquorice root, orange peel, and orris root. The bottle is also a sight to behold, evoking the ripples of the sea.

Further Info:

The Isle of Harris distillery officially opened in September 2015, though the story of the Hebridean island’s first commercial distillery begins several years earlier.

Musicologist Anderson Bakewell, who owned a property on the neighbouring island of Scarp, was troubled by the dwindling population of Harris, an island he cared deeply about. Despite not being an avid fan of whisky, he sought to build the island’s first distillery in Tarbert, the island’s capital and ferry link to Skye. His plan was to create a business that not only involved the local community but also provided an attractive long-term employment solution for Harris residents.

Not long after selecting a site on the main north-south road through Tarbert, Bakewell’s project secured the largest public grant awarded to a food and drink business in Scottish history. Further grants and private investments soon flooded in from all over the world and the rest they say, is history.
