Harris Gin Click & Collect now available

Isle of Harris Gin

Our new gin captures the elemental nature of the Isle of Harris, rewarding the drinker with maritime pleasures. The unique inclusion of local, hand-harvested Sugar kelp speaks of our island's deep connections to the sea while working with eight other carefully chosen botanicals.
Nose
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 with a dry maritime note.

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

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

Suggested Serve
We recommend that you enjoy this citrus, herbal and coastal gin with Walter Gregor’s Scottish Tonic Water, a few drops of our Sugar Kelp Aromatic Water and either a cut piece of pink or red grapefruit or simply a wedge of fresh lime.
