Steeped in Hebridean history, but always forward thinking, our family run distillery produces some of the finest artisan spirits in Scotland from the beautiful Island of North Uist.

Our special Scottish ‘Downpour’ Gin is bursting with botanicals, drenching you in big bold flavours you can taste in every drop. Citrus, spice and a punch of wild Hebridean heather.
