The Isle of Harris distillery is located in Tarbert, the main town on the island, and started production in autumn 2015. A privately owned company that emerged in this remote location due to the founders’ deep attachment to the island and their affection for their residents. As the only distillery on the island, it rises above the small port of Tarbert and represents the spirit of the island for everyone who comes to Harris by land or sea.
The distillery’s socially oriented concept was born out of the idea of making the best possible use of the island’s natural resources in order to sustainably strengthen the local economic power, create jobs and a social hub for the approximately 2000 islanders and the name Harris not only for tweed but also to make known for whiskey and gin.
As a small and independent distillery, the Harris distillery maintains a personal relationship with the lovers of the products. It is only produced in small quantities and with great attention to the quality that inspires customers. One always wants to offer the greatest possible transparency and information, sustainability and values are more important than extensive availability. In the newsletter we regularly report on the distillery, products and other news from the island.
