The Social Distillery

Where it all Began

The concept for the distillery grew out of a realisation that the island's natural assets could best be harnessed to address its acute economic problems through a project that brings this special place and its qualities to the attention of a wider audience.

Isle of Harris - Social Brand

The creation of the Isle of Harris Distillery in Tarbert is thus driven by a deep and abiding love for the beauty and wit of this place and its people.

We want to make a 'Social Distillery', with the future of Harris at its heart, not only to enrich the island, creating an enterprise that will thrive for decades and even centuries to come, but to send the magical, elusive spirit of the island out into the world.

We do hope that you will recognise something 'set apart' in what Isle of Harris Distillers are doing and be inspired to participate in the realisation of its vision.
