V&A Dundee


This weekend is the public opening of the spectacular V&A Dundee design museum, its evocative ship-like structure sitting proudly on the banks of the Tay. Created by Japanese architect Kengo Kuma, this impressive new building now houses over 300 examples of exemplary Scottish design.
 
We’re incredibly proud to say that visitors to this world-class endeavour will also be able to experience some creative work of our own, as we announce that Isle of Harris Gin, with its award-winning iconic bottle, will be present in their Tatha Bar & Kitchen overlooking the river.


   


Open in the evenings from Sundays to Thursdays from 27th September 2018, our Isle of Harris Gin is one of several specially chosen Scottish gins being served in Tatha, and visitors will be able to enjoy our bespoke serve while they choose from their farm to fork menu of fresh, seasonal dishes.
 
We have also been delighted to participate in a series of launch events this week for specially invited guests, and our island spirit has been flowing as we served an official welcome drink to some 2,500 of the V&A celebrants in attendance, including our own managing director Simon Erlanger and his wife.


   


It is an honour to be associated with this exciting cultural landmark as it sets out to write a new chapter in the city's remarkable story. In particular, we’re heartened to witness the fruition of such an ambitious local project with goals and values much in keeping with our own here in the islands.
 
As the 3D Festival events in Slessor Gardens tonight and tomorrow evening look set to launch the V&A Dundee journey in style, we offer our congratulations to everyone involved and look forward to sharing more news of our connections and activity over the coming months. 


   


We hope you can enjoy a taste of the Outer Hebrides when you finally make your visit and please look out for the work of our friends in Harris Tweed who are also part of the opening exhibition.

Meantime, we invite you to visit the V&A Dundee website for lots more information on their upcoming events.
