Just a few short years ago, no one could have imagined the Isle of Harris would become widely renowned for making beautiful gin. 

Yet today on her Instagram account, internationally renowned celebrity chef Nigella Lawson says Harris gin is the best. 

"(Harris Gin) is the most delicious gin I have ever tasted. (Though have to confess it was the beauty of the bottle that first seduced me). 

“In fact, having not been much of a gin drinker, I am now exquisitely, if expensively, converted. A wee nip to sip, as it is, on the rocks, is just perfect. 

"Now planning a trip to the distillery!"

Only last month Isle of Harris Gin was voted the gin lovers’ favourite Scottish Gin in a nation-wide survey by The Scottish Gin Society, with thousands of aficionados submitting their choices online.

The Isle of Harris Distillery says that: “In a busy and competitive market, we’re proud that our work is shining through, capturing our customers’ hearts and minds as we share our island story and spirit through social media and, of course, a world-class gin.”
