Harris Gin 70cl
A stunning craft gin from the Isle of Harris Distillery, winners of 'Scottish Gin Distillery of the Year 2021' at the Scottish Gin Awards.
Refreshing, with a good balance between the bitter juniper and pine and the sweet fruit flavours of mango, grapefruit and orange. It's no wonder why this stunning gin is so popular.
Produced at the Distillery in the village of Tarbert, every drop is distilled in a small copper gin still known as 'The Dottach', before being bottled and sealed by hand.
Presented in a beautiful bottle that captures the elemental nature of the Isle of Harris, this makes a lovely gift or treat for any gin lover.
Net weight: 1.6kg
Nose: A 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 and gives a dry maritime note.
Palate: Refreshing, with good balance between the bitter juniper and pine and the sweet fruit flavours of mango, grapefruit and orange. A green herb flavour of crushed coriander develops. Distinctive and smooth with a dry, flinty taste.
Finish: Overall a long, clean finish. As the juniper and citrus fade away, sweet vanilla and black pepper remain with a gentle reminder of the sea.
