 Our gin embodies the elemental nature of the Scottish Isle of Harris and promises a smooth and complex maritime drinking experience.

The unique balance of local, hand-gathered Sugar kelp combined with eight carefully chosen botanicals speaks of our deep connection with the sea

 
 

On The Nose

A well-defined juniper note with pine needles, immediately followed by the fresh citrus notes of bitter orange, lime and grapefruit. Develops a complex floral note of rose and wallflowers with crushed green herbs, coriander and gooseberry all underpinned by mixed spice. Sugar kelp adds to the complexity and richness and gives a dry maritime note.

On The Palate

Refreshing gin with good balance between the bitter juniper and pine and the sweet fruit flavours of mango, grapefruit and orange. A green herb flavour has developed of crushed coriander. Distinctive and smooth with a dry, flinty taste.

On The Finish

Overall a long, clean finish. As the juniper and citrus fade away, sweet vanilla and black pepper remain with a gentle reminder of the sea.

The award-winning Isle of Harris Gin is our distillery's inaugural spirit release.

Every drop is distilled here in Tarbert in our small copper gin still, known affectionately as 'The Dottach' after a similarly fiery and feisty local woman.

The Dottach imbues our spirit with the complex delights of nine carefully chosen botanicals as we seek to capture the elemental nature of our island, particularly the maritime influences of the seas which surround us. 

 

The label is simple but you will struggle to find any two alike, each individually flecked with fragments of copper leaf and Sugar Kelp.

A latin motto to live by hides beneath the reassuring weight of the base, while a simple wood and cork stopper is sealed with the coordinates of our distillery's location, your guarantee that this a truly Outer Hebridean gin. 

The final result is a smooth and complex spirit which is wonderful to enjoy on its own or with a few drops of our Sugar Kelp Aromatic Water to heighten the subtle coastal notes in your glass.
