Open day for local residents

As the Social Distillery, we always keep the residents of Harris informed of our plans and invite them to offer their thoughts and suggestions.

Next Wednesday 28th January we will hold another Open Day in the Harris Hotel where the newly recruited team will be able to update everyone on our plans for making whisky and gin and will show how the interior of the building will work.

Now that our permanent team has been recruited, this will also be an opportunity for us to meet anyone who is interested in joining the team on a seasonal basis to help welcome our guests.

During the morning we will have individual meetings with potential suppliers of locally produced items for our shop and canteen.


On the production side, we met last night with all the local crofters to work out how they would collect and share our ‘draff’ (the by-product from the mashing). This will provide a year-round feedstuff for all the island’s livestock, including Alasdair’s brightly coloured sheep.
