Isle Of Harris Gin is the inaugural spirit released by Isle of Harris Distillers which opened in 2015. The gin is made with nine botanicals which are steeped in neutral grain spirits, the most notable being sugar kelp which is hand-harvested by a local diver. Other botanicals include juniper, coriander, angelica root, bitter orange peel, orris root, cubeb, cassia bark, and licorice. After the maceration is complete, the sugar kelp is removed and distillation takes place in a copper still named "The Dottach."

    Also has been referred to as "Contemporary", "New Western", "New Wave", and "New American". This style is not legally defined. In general, this category of gin, while it does contain juniper, places less of an emphasis on this botanical. Other botanicals not classically used in London Dry gins are often utilized and often highlight botanicals grown in the region the gin is produced. Most produced as either London Dry or Distilled Gins.

Tasting Notes

"Coastal salty forest in a glass. Juniper forward on the nose with lots of Seville marmalade upfront and center. The palate is reminiscent of Dutch salty black licorice, slightly astringent but mouth watering all at once. Peppery and slightly bitter citrus finish which isn’t long but is quite satisfying. Very unique gin that has maritime flair. Highly recommend it be tried neat but also very tasty with Indian tonic and a slice of orange as garnish."
