The award-winning Isle of Harris Gin is made in Tarbert, every drop distilled in a small copper gin still known as 'The Dottach', before being bottled and sealed by hand.

A beautifully designed bottle captures the elemental nature of the Isle of Harris, while its contents reward the discerning gin drinker with refreshing maritime pleasures.

The inclusion of local, hand-harvested Sugar Kelp speaks of the island's deep connections to the sea while working with eight other carefully chosen botanicals.

Nose
A well-defined juniper note with pine needles, immediately followed by the fresh citrus notes of bitter orange, lime and grapefruit.  Develops a complex floral note of rose and wallflowers with crushed green herbs, coriander and gooseberry all underpinned by mixed spice.  Sugar Kelp adds to the complexity and richness and gives a dry maritime note.

Palate
Refreshing, with good balance between the bitter juniper and pine and the sweet fruit flavours of mango, grapefruit and orange.  A green herb flavour of crushed coriander develops.  Distinctive and smooth with a dry, flinty taste.

Finish
Overall a long, clean finish.  As the juniper and citrus fade away, sweet vanilla and black pepper remain with a gentle reminder of the sea.
