Distillery Life

The Isle of Harris Distillery is a working distillery, creating spirits for the award-winning Isle of Harris Gin and our forthcoming 'The Hearach' Single Malt Whisky.

But in keeping with our 'Social Distillery' ethos, we are also open to visitors six days a week.

Our doors are unlocked to guests at 10am, from Monday to Saturday, with a traditional peat fire lit in the heart of the distillery each morning to give everyone a warm welcome.

There is no public wi-fi, no widescreen TVs or interactive displays. Instead, you will find real connection through our friendly staff, ready and willing to share our story and island spirit.


Our convivial Canteen is also open to all, staff and visitors alike, offering a simple menu of delicious hot soups and homebaking, served at communal tables or in the comfort of Harris Tweed chairs. 

The distillery Shop is filled with fresh batches of Isle of Harris Gin daily, as well as a selection of fine wines and spirits from some of our favourite producers. You will also find other local wares, as well as books, gifts and other interesting goods.

And while you're very welcome to cross our threshold at any time, our regular Tours allow you to go behind the scenes and witness the heart of the distilling operation.

Guided by knowledgeable local staff, each tour will bring you closer to island life, deepening your appreciation of the distillery and how the Isle of Harris makes its spirits.
