Our island distillery sits by the harbour shores of a small village in the far northwest reaches of Scotland, tucked into the tightly belted isthmus of Tarbert.
For most people who follow our stories, we're probably perceived as far-flung and remote. Indeed we often refer to ourselves as such in our Journals. But, for us, it’s simply the heart of the Outer Hebrides and the place we call home.
All our work takes place here in the Isle of Harris, from making and bottling our beautiful spirits, to filling the casks which are then racked and stacked for many years of coastal maturation.
We take great pride in our provenance and do all we can to keep things local. By doing so we create more long-term jobs for our community as we grow, which in turn help address the many issues around acute population decline we currently face.
Which is why we insist on dealing directly with everyone who wants to enjoy our Isle of Harris Gin. Every order made connects us to you personally, ensuring the very best of service and the opportunity to share not just our spirit but our story too.
But, we realise this unusual philosophy can have its downsides. In an always-on world, many people find themselves time-poor, and the somewhat slower pace and patience of island life just can’t apply.
So, for Isle of Harris Gin lovers who want their hands on it in a hurry, we’ve been working hard to get even closer to our customers across the country through our pioneering take on Click & Collect.
Here’s how it works…
It really is that easy!
We have over 100 independent dispensary partners across the UK who we work closely with, and trust to hold and look after a small stock of Isle of Harris Gin on our behalf.
As soon as you show them your email receipt, they’ll be happy to wrap, bag and hand over your order along with tasting notes to help you enjoy your Isle of Harris Gin.
You’ll find our local dispensaries everywhere, from small villages and towns to big cities like Glasgow, Edinburgh and even London, each one linking our island home to yours.
We’ll be growing this family of friends and striving to make our online shopping experience the very best it can be over the coming months.
Meantime, please visit our Find Our Spirit page to explore the interactive map and begin your Click. Connect. Collect. journey in time for the weekend...
