Your Favourite Scottish Gin
Posted on: 4th May, 2018
Just a few short years ago, few people outside Tarbert could have imagined the Isle of Harris would become widely renowned for making beautiful gin. But thanks to the talents of our local distillers and distillery team, times have certainly changed.
Today, we're delighted to learn that our Isle of Harris Gin has been voted the gin lovers’ favourite Scottish Gin in a nation-wide survey by The Scottish Gin Society, with thousands of aficionados submitting their choices online.
In a busy and competitive market, we’re proud that our work is shining through, capturing our customers’ hearts and minds as we share our island story and spirit through social media and, of course, a world-class gin.
We’re also proud of all our friends and colleagues in the wider industry here in Scotland, who are joining us in leading the world in developing gin as a spirit to rival the whisky our country is so rightly famous for.
There are now over 70 Scottish gin makers creating over 150 different gins, each with their own special stories to tell and unique botanicals to bring to their copper stills, which sing from Shetland in the north to Solway in the south.
We congratulate them all on their creativity and perseverance, and look forward to many more years of working within this thriving community as we continue to build on our mutual successes and the good word of Scottish gin spreads across the globe.
Meantime, we’re reaching for a wonderful new Isle of Harris Gin Martini to toast our news. The Flora Martini, has been created by bartender George Terzakis of Edinburgh’s Bon Vivant bar and is a perfect way to celebrate this special occasion.
We thank our customers for honouring us with their support and enthusiasm at this early stage in our gin-making journey.
Mòran taing a-huile duine agus slàinte mhath!
Our thanks to George Terzakis and Rebecca James at Bon Vivant.
