Harris Gin is the favourite gin of Scottish drinkers – and that’s just been made official for the second year in a row.
A national online survey of gin-drinkers saw 21% of the 6435 voters choose Isle of Harris as the only Scottish gin they would want if they had to pick just one.
The survey was conducted by the Scottish gin society, which announced the results on Tuesday (February 19th).
A spokesman for the society said: “This unique distillery ethos has clearly captured the imagination of gin lovers across Scotland and built impressive customer loyalty for this award-winning brand.”
Simon Erlanger, MD, Isle of Harris Distillers commented: “Everyone at the Isle of Harris Distillery is really excited to hear that our Isle of Harris gin has been voted the nation’s favourite in The Scottish Gin Society’s survey for the second year in a row.
"It is especially good news to know that our gin, despite being only three years old, continues to gain recognition on a national scale and our ethos has really captured the public’s imagination. We are so pleased and proud to know that gin lovers enjoy the flavour and unique story of our world-class gin as much as we do.”
Stephen White, Founder of The Scottish Gin Society said: “We believe The Scottish Gin Society survey to be the largest of its kind and are delighted to have received twice as many responses in 2019. The results show that the popularity of Scottish gin is still growing, especially with all the new entrants appearing in this year’s survey. We would like to congratulate the brands involved as they are all producing exceptional products and look forward to the bright future of the gin industry in Scotland.”
