Opening Times and How to Find Us
Due to the escalating COVID-19 crisis, we have decided to close the Isle of Harris Distillery to the public with immediate effect.
Although no cases have yet been confirmed in the Outer Hebrides, the safety of our staff, guests and the wider community are of paramount importance to us.
We hope by taking this preemptive action we can help play our part in mitigating the spread of this new disease.
We have been in touch directly with those who have booked tours in March and April and will update anyone with bookings later in the year as the picture becomes clearer.
Those of our team who can work from home are now doing so while a small production team continues to work safely behind the scenes for the time being.
Our online shop remains open and we would be delighted to send our Isle of Harris Gin to all who wish to continue enjoying our island spirit during these challenging times.
We’ll also be busy on Facebook, Instagram on Twitter so let’s stay connected online too.
There is great strength and support to be found in community. So, please continue to look after yourselves and each other and we'll get through this together.
In island spirit,
The Harris Distillery Team
THE DISTILLERY IS CURRENTLY CLOSED DUE TO THE PUBLIC DUE THE COVID-19 CRISIS.
We will update this information further as the situation develops.
HOW TO FIND US
BY LAND, SEA OR AIR
If you are travelling from afar, the quickest and easiest way to reach us is by air.
The nearest airport to us is Stornoway, the capital town of the neighbouring Isle of Lewis, 36 miles to our north. You can fly from the Scottish mainland connections of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Inverness via Loganair.
You can also arrive by sea with Caledonian MacBrayne Ferries, most conveniently by ferry from Uig in Skye, disembarking at the pier in East Loch Tarbert just yards from our distillery door.
Alternatively, you can sail from Ullapool to Stornoway or land in Leverburgh to our south from Berneray.
Those of you who skipper their own boats can also make use of the new Isle of Harris Marina pontoons in the bay in front of the distillery.
Whether driving, riding, cycling, or walking, simply look for 'Tairbeart' on the Gaelic roadsigns or ask anyone local for directions.
We are set in the heart of our community and not hard to find...
