The Isle of Harris gin distillery was founded by 2015 by Anderson Bakewell, and it is situated in the remote Outer Hebrides — a beautiful, wild area of Scotland famous for its scenic views and fresh air. The American-born founder wanted to provide jobs for the remote island's residents, and this distillery maintains its community-minded spirit to this day, with over 30 islanders employed in making this beverage. Infused with sugar kelp, this gin contains interesting flavour notes for those who enjoy exploring different spirits.
Isle of Harris gin is infused with sugar kelp, which is harvested from the island by a local diver, and then used as one of the key botanicals in this unique spirit's production process. The sugar kelp scent and taste are always in the background for this gin and provide an excellent foil to the classic juniper flavour. Citrus notes are added to give freshness to the overall flavour. Equally refreshing neat, in a gin and tonic, or as part of a cocktail experiment, this gin is a great choice for any occasion.
If you are looking for a locally sourced, handcrafted gin as a gift or to try something new yourself, this is an excellent choice. Tied to the local community, and dedicated to the pursuit of a signature flavour, this distillery is one to watch in gin production.
Even the Isle of Harris gin bottle is crafted with love and care: each bottle of this gin has the coordinates of the distillery printed on it, so you can be sure that you are buying a locally sourced, signature gin with its own distinctive flavour.
