89 years ago today, at 5am, the last 36 native islanders of remote Hirta, St Kilda left their homes for the final time. Bound for new and very different lives, their departure marked the end of 4000 years of continual inhabitance.

The seas of East Loch Tarbert were once much closer to West Loch Tarbert, allowing Vikings to pull ships across the land instead of sailing the longer route south. And it is from the old Norse words that our village gets its name, Tairbeart, meaning “draw boat”. #harrisathome

Our distillery is closed on Sundays, traditionally a day of rest here in the Western Isles. It’s a chance to relax and unwind before we return to work tomorrow and begin our distilling once again. Have a peaceful end to your week!

Grant & Lorna have a brilliant food van at the top of the Golden Road. While Lorna makes the most of local produce, Grant dives for scallops and is developing a smokehouse in their home village of Drinishader. Fresh local seafood is the perfect partner to an Isle of Harris G&T🍸

Come and visit us when lockdown is finally lifted. Meantime, we can send our island spirit in a bottle to you.
