Extracted from Isle of Harris Distillers
The Isle of Harris, standing out in the Atlantic on the far northwestern edge of Scotland, is an elemental place, full of contradictions: wild and gentle, warm and calm, ancient and yet bubbling with life.
There are few places on earth where time spent around the fire can be as welcoming or as full of cheer. At the head of the harbour in East Loch Tarbert, visible to everyone arriving there by land or sea, the first distillery in Harris is now creating true island spirit.
Opened in October 2015, we welcome guests to our hearth every day bar the Sabbath to witness and share in our work. It is a welcoming place, with a peat fire glowing at its heart, the flavours of the island in the canteen and the feeling that here in the distillery you will find something of the essence of Harris.
