The adventurous spirit of the Barra people inspires our unique gin. Our award-winning Barra Atlantic Gin is distilled from 17 specially selected botanicals, capturing the essence of our beautiful home. Born from the Island, with our key botanical hand foraged from the shores that surround our Island home on the edge of the Atlantic. Every drop of our Island spirit distilled, bottled and labelled right here on the Isle of Barra, from our Family Distillery.
ISLAND BORN, FEARLESS SPIRIT.
HOW WE MAKE OUR ISLAND SPIRIT
Our Island Spirit begins its journey being Distilled in our custom-built copper still "Ada". Another notable nod to the connections made by our 'Family Distillery' as our copper still is named after our co-founder's daughter, who is just as fiery as our beautiful still, which was handcrafted by the world-leading Forsyth's from Rothes in Scotland. Our local distiller creates a spirit that has the essence of the Outer Hebrides at its core, our gin, distilled with 17 individually & carefully selected botanicals but is the Carrageen Seaweed, sustainably hand foraged from the shores of our island Home, is the key to setting our Gin & bringing it to life.
Our distillation method is vapour infused, meaning our botanicals rest on two baskets within our copper still 'Ada' and as the spirit begins to reach optimum temperature, the vapour that is carried through, passes by our complex mix of 17 botanicals, all weighed to the exact gram beforehand. As the vapour passes, it softens our botanical and collects the essential oils. As the vapour continues through our copper-still, it's not long before the end result is our award-winning Barra Atlantic Gin. When distilling our Outer Hebridean gin, we discard the heads and tails from our distillate. The vast majority of gin distillers reuse the heads and tales, but we feel that the end result just isn't as crisp, smooth or premium. So, although it is more costly, we feel this is the best method possible to create our premium gin.
Once our distillation run is complete, we leave our spirit to settle for seven full days and let the flavours grow. We feel this adds to the distinctive taste that our Barra Atlantic Gin carries. From there, we label, bottle & ship all of our award-winning gin from our Family Distillery on the Isle of Barra, from our home to your hands, a labour of love.
17 HANDPICKED BOTANICALS
Each botanical plays an important part in our gin, which creates a unique and distinctive flavour that embodies the fearless Island spirit.
Foraged from the shores of our remote Isle of Barra, Carrageen seaweed provides a bold, maritime flavour, with a mentholic lean and a pinch of salty air.
OUR BEAUTIFUL HOME
The marriage between our island home and the expansive sea that surrounds Barra’s rugged coastline is hidden in every bottle of Barra Atlantic Gin.
