Food & Drink


Stood proud at the head of Harris harbour, the Isle of Harris Distillers is busy producing aged whiskies, distilling premium gins and building a business to support and rejuvenate a community.

After a full breakfast from the Calmac ferry canteen, we went up on deck to witness a double rainbow straight out of a Lucky Charms advert. The clouds parted and the sun burst through. It felt as though Harris was welcoming us in. As the ferry came into the head of the harbour in Tarbert, we could see the black and white church-like building that we would be visiting… the newly-opened Harris Distillery. We were meeting Kenny MacLean, Harris born and bred, currently working as the Project Manager for the distillery.
