The Isle of Harris Distillery in Tarbert has celebrated its seventh birthday at the end of another award-winning week.

The company marked the milestone just days after its Isle of Harris Gin hit gold twice in as many days.

They picked up a gold medal in the Tokyo Whisky and Spirits Competition from a field of more than 2,700 entrants.

Then a matter of hours later captured a Double Gold medal at this year’s New York Wine and Spirits Competition. The double was the first time the Harris distillery struck gold in the US. The gin is now available in 14 states after launching in Washington, DC, last week. 

Reflecting on achieving their seventh birthday on a high, the distillery commented on Saturday: “Tonight, the Harris Distillery team are raising a glass to seven years from the day we officially opened our doors and lit the fire in our hearth for the first time.

“Back then, surrounded by many of those who brought the dream of a local whisky distillery to life, three generations of Hearaich added a small, dark piece of peat to the growing flames as we set out to build something with pride and purpose.”

“Today, seven years on, we believe we've done just that.”

The distillery team thanked the community for its “endless support and enthusiasm.”
