Isle of Harris Gin

£37.00

Isle of Harris Distillers 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 the 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

They 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.
