Isle of Harris Gin
We at Farley Finch have always been passionate about small-batch and craft drinks, especially if the drink is gin. For a while now we have been following the progress on a new whiskey distillery on the Isle of Harris, one of Scotland’s beautiful western isles.
We first heard of the distillery through Gregg’s cousin, who had invested in a barrel of “The Hearach” (the distillery’s first single malt whisky), who told us of a new gin they had been producing in the downtime whilst waiting for their whisky to mature.
Fast-forward to today and their Isle of Harris gin is everywhere- and after one sip its easy to see why: such a unique and smooth taste with some really eye-catching packaging, and in fact they recently had to ration the gin as it was so popular that the supply couldn’t keep up with the demand.
And so having enjoyed a bottle or two of the gin since then, we were inspired to create something of a passion-piece in honour of this fine drink!
As sugar kelp is hand-harvested off the shores of the Isle of Harris (giving the gin its subtle coastal note), we thought it would be appropriate to take the drink back to the coast. So on our own accord and unbeknownst to the distillery, we prepared a picnic, packed up our cameras and had a couple of our friends come along to do some modelling for us (we feel we are best suited behind the cameras!), with the intention of making a little promotional film to show how we do things at Farley Finch. We’re keeping the video private for the time being, but feel free to get in touch and we might share a private link with you!
All the bottles come straight from their Distillery in Tarbert, so if you want to see what all the fuss is about we’ll leave a link to their website for you!
