Katie Macleod, author of the international travel blog http://storiesmysuitcasecouldtell.com and long-time feature writer and foreign correspondent for EVENTS newspaper and welovestornoway.com made a major discovery in New York City this week.
As she reports on her blog's Facebook Page, "It was a hot and sticky weekend in NYC, but the perfect refreshment arrived on this side of the pond in the form of Isle of Harris Gin from Isle of Harris Distillers Ltd.
"In case you missed the news, one of my favourite island gins is now finally available in a couple of states here in the USA! In NYC, it’s for sale in just one liquor store on Manhattan’s Upper West Side… one that will no doubt be seeing me quite often."
And for those on the prowl for their island tipple in NYC she disclosed she was in: "Columbus Ave Wine & Spirits on 96th! They said they had just got the bottles in last week, and there were a couple on the shelf 😀"
