Isle of Harris
''We work with nine carefully chosen ingredients, each lending their own individual characteristics, and all sourced with our usual attention to detail.
Sugar Kelp plays the starring role, bringing a complex, maritime edge to proceedings and we work with local diver and seaweed expert Lewis Mackenzie to gather this magical seaweed from our local sea-lochs in a sustainable harvest.
Lewis picks the gold-green fronds from hidden underwater forests by hand in the springtime before taking them to be dried locally.
When there is no 'r' in the month, the kelp is left to recover and grow, ensuring this vital local habitat for sealife is not harmed.''
HOW ITS MADE
''We make every drop of our award-winning Isle of Harris Gin here in the small village of Tarbert.
Our local distillers create this first offering from our island distillery in a small copper gin still which sits alongside her larger whisky-making sisters in the distillery's bright Spirit Hall.
We've nicknamed our gin still 'The Dotach' in honour of a similarly small and feisty local woman who is fondly remembered here in Harris from days gone by.
We use Sugar Kelp seaweed, gathered sustainably by hand from local sea-lochs, as our key botanical to express our island's unique maritime nature.
The spirit is softened by the fresh, low-mineral rainwaters which flow from the nearby source stream of Abhainn Cnoc a ’Charrain.
We bottle Isle of Harris Gin by hand here at the distillery too, before applying the labels and closing each one with a natural cork and wood stopper.
Finally, we apply a paper seal bearing our distillery's geographical coordinates to every single bottle by hand, your guarantee of a truly Outer Hebridean gin, made in the Isle of Harris and nowhere else.''
