A Summer Of Super Stockists

Posted on

Look for the Official Stockist badge in local UK stores.

Until now, Isle of Harris Gin has only ever been available directly from our distillery here in the harbour village of Tarbert.

As word of our island spirit spread, we took steps to get closer to our customers through a unique Click & Collect service, but we soon outgrew that idea.

So, we're now delighted to bring our beautiful bottles to gin lovers across the UK through a new network of official Isle of Harris Gin stockists who can sell them straight from their shop shelves.

Great to be with the Aitken Wines team in Dundee.

Our new network makes it easier to get your hands on Isle of Harris Gin.

We always strive to share our story alongside our spirit. So we've worked hard to ensure the best customer service and experience continues to be offered through carefully selected partners like Aitken Wines in Dundee.

We're delighted with the new friends we're making as this change takes place and thought we'd share some of their excitement at the news of this recent move into their independent retail world.

So here's a high-class handful to start with…

Isle of Harris Gin now available at the farm shop at Priory Farm Estate.

The farm shop at Priory Farm Estate, Surrey.

Priory Farm Estate has been owned by the Shinner family for 65 years and has become a family destination with a garden centre, nature walk and an award-winning farm shop.

"We are now a proud stockist of Isle of Harris Gin. We recently decided to increase our range of local gins by looking a little further afield for unique, rare, and sustainable spirits.

We were thrilled when one of our most regular customers mentioned that you now partner with selected retailers. We were even happier to be accepted as an official stockist."

Beautiful bottles on the shelves of The Scottish Gantry

Buy Isle of Harris Gin from their stores in Stirling and Milngavie.

The Scottish Gantry has always championed brands that stay focused on being truly independent and wish to showcase their talent within specialist retail stores like themselves. Alan Irvine from their store tells us…

"The iconic blue Harris bottle has been a big success, and when placed in our window, we have seen new visitors come to our store.The team at Harris have embraced their role, supporting us with tastings and samplings and creating even further reach for an already popular product."

The Durham Ginstitute is a small independent gin shop specialising in small-batch, high-quality gins you won't find in the supermarket. Owner Rob Bell tells us…

"We are delighted to have been chosen as a stockist for Harris Gin which has been selling very well since it arrived, both with existing Harris Gin fans and new converts to this extremely smooth and warm fabulous gin."

Happy to be in stock at The Spirits Room!

The Spirits Room is the specialist spirits branch of an existing independent wine business, Caviste. They provide their customers with a hand-picked selection of some of the finest distillates from around the world.

Manager Will Blakeley tells us…

"Put simply, "I-Love-Harris!" And our customers do, too, as Harris has become our best-selling gin. They love the beautiful design and come back time and again once opened and enjoyed.

So whether it's a G&T or a seaweed martini, we can't help but be captivated by Isle of Harris Gin."

It's wonderful to be with Mackintosh At The Willow in Glasgow.

Finally, we have the A-listed Mackintosh At The Willow, set at the original Willow Team Rooms building, which first opened in Glasgow in 1903. Pauline Young, Managing Director, tell us…

"Mackintosh at the Willow is thrilled to have recently commenced this exciting collaboration with the Isle of Harris Gin. Not only do we now sell the beautiful bottles but it’s a perfect match for our delicious afternoon teas. Our Head Chef has also created a stunning Scottish salmon starter, cured with Isle of Harris Gin - a true delight for the taste buds.

We are also excited to launch an Isle of Harris Gin dining experience in the upcoming months, incorporating this exceptional and versatile gin and the distinctive Sugar kelp aromatic water, proof that the possibilities are limitless to enjoy this remarkable spirit!"

Two iconic Scottish designs meet at last!

A huge thank you to these fantastic businesses for being part of this new chapter in our story and to over 150 other partners who are now part of the growing official stockists' network.

We'll be hearing from more of them over the coming months.
