With Michael born and bread on the island, the plan was always to bring distillation back to Barra. Originally distilled outside Scotland using carrageen seaweed from the Isle of Barra, in May 2019, the dream of establishing the island’s first legal distillery became a reality when the business was granted a distilling licence and bonded warehouse facilities.

Proud of the island, the history and the heritage, the Isle of Barra Distillers Co. hope that the distillery will create a new legacy for the island. Depopulation has been a constant threat to most of the island communities across Scotland but the team hope that their fearless island spirt and new distillery will lead to further employment for residents on the island.

A balance of floral and herbal notes with juniper, citrus and slight salt creates a refreshing and clean flavour with a warm spice on the finish.
