Isle of Harris Gin


Scotland's first gin from the Western Isles has arrived! And the magic ingredient is sugar kelp - hand-dived from the seas around the new Isle of Harris Distillery. A true Hebridean seaweed found in underwater forests all around the island, it brings a slight saltiness to the gin, but also light spice and a bright green character. The kelp is dried and infused into the spirit in minute quantities as it is very powerful. The gin retails at £35 for 70cl with an ABV of 45%. It comes four years ahead of the distillery's main product - a £400-a-bottle single malt whisky which is to be named 'The Hearach' - the Gaelic word for an inhabitant of Harris.
