About Isle of Harris Gin
Every drop is distilled in Tarbert in a small copper gin still, known affectionately as ‘The Dottach’ after a similarly fiery and feisty local woman.
The Dottach imbues the spirit of the Isle of Harris with the complex delights of nine carefully chosen botanicals, seeking to capture the elemental nature of the island, particularly the maritime influences of the surrounding seas.
Of all the botanicals used, it is Sugar kelp which is key to the subtle coastal notes that mark out the spirit.
Hand-harvested by a local diver from the deep underwater forests of the Outer Hebrides, this natural and sustainable ingredient completes the wider aspects of the gin’s flavour profile.
Unlike many gin-makers, Harris distillers discard, instead of recycling, the ‘heads’ and ‘tails’ of their spirit run, leaving only the very best of the distillate’s ‘heart’.
Capturing all this in a beautiful glass bottle, ribbed and rippled like the seas of Luskentyre, a gentle azure rising from its depths. There are subtle imperfections, dimples and dips to hold it safely while you pour a generous measure.
The label is simple but you will struggle to find any two alike, each individually flecked with fragments of copper leaf and Sugar Kelp.
A latin motto to live by hides beneath the reassuring weight of the base, while a simple wood and cork stopper is sealed with the coordinates of the distillery’s location, your guarantee that this a truly Outer Hebridean gin.
The final result is a smooth and complex spirit which is wonderful to enjoy on its own or with a few drops of Sugar Kelp Aromatic Water to heighten the subtle coastal notes in your glass.
