About

‘Machair’ is a Gaelic word which describes a unique coastal environment, rich in the flora and fauna of the Hebrides. The botanicals which flourish in the glorious machair land of south-west Lewis inspire our contemporary Leòdhas gin – mint, wild thyme, rhubarb root with just a touch of heather. Blended with pure Lewis water which flows through the island’s Gneissian rock, they come together to create a light, refreshing gin, full of flavour and provides the perfect serve or as an addition to cocktails.

We are Iain and Laura, the co-founders of the Isle of Lewis Gin. With a longstanding passion for gin-making and the process of distillation, we decided, in 2022, to take the plunge and start work on creating the Isle of Lewis Gin from our home in fabulous Uig, on the south-west periphery of the island.

Our story begins during the Covid pandemic, Iain worked for the NHS and after 3 long and difficult years we were looking for a better work life balance. Fortunately, Covid made it possible to work from home anywhere on the planet so of course we chose the Isle of Lewis, where family roots run deep.

Our critical first step was to create a recipe of botanicals that reflects the environment we live in so, we took a walk along the stunning machair at Reef Beach in Uig. It was in full bloom with a profusion of wild plants and flowers. That was the start of a journey to identify and blend the subtle machair flavours that have come together in the Isle of Lewis Gin.

We hope you agree the product is worthy of the place that inspired it and enjoy our quest to capture the spirit of Lewis in a bottle.
