About

It started as a dream, a dream to create a future for their family and generations to come, on the land that they call home. Husband-and-wife, Michael & Katie Morrison, sought out to open the first legal distillery on the Isle of Barra. From this instance the Isle of Barra Distillers was born.

Standing out in the Atlantic on the far western edge of Scotland, you’ll find our home, our distillery. Distilled and bottled on the remote Scottish Island of Barra, our gin has a piece of our home in each bottle.

Each piece of our key botanical – carrageen seaweed - is hand-harvested from the
shores that surround our island home, creating a bold flavour, rich in maritime notes.

The adventurous spirit of 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, every drop is distilled, bottled and labelled right here on the Isle of Barra.
