It’s been quite the week here on Barra, not to mention a successful one at that. From a spontaneous mid-week day off for staff, to giving back to the local community. We’re pleased to reflect on our working days.
Well, we enjoyed that short spell of great weather, giving us a taste of the summer! It made us reminisce on summers gone by, seasonal traditions and gatherings. A fantastic season to be on Barra for and one that we can only hope to return to in the very near future.
We have thoroughly enjoyed welcoming new and familiar faces to our distillery this past week. With the easing of restrictions, we have appreciated the return of normality to an extent and our much-loved island buzz!
Journal day has conveniently landed on a very special day indeed. Today we celebrate our very own Co-Owner & Managing Director’s Birthday. As a celebration, this week’s journal is dedicated to the one and only Michael Morrison!
The Isle of Barra Distillers Ltd story begins only as far back as 2016. Born for a desire to move home to the Outer Hebrides in the far North West of Scotland, and build something that will evoke the community spirit, our founders Kate and Michael Morrison started developing the plans for a Gin and Whisky Distillery.
Today, we celebrate a very special day indeed, a day spent honouring our mothers and mother figures. A day to show thanks and appreciation to those special to us. A day to enjoy together, with our families...
It is with great pleasure, that we invite you to join our Official Barra Atlantic Gin Facebook Group. A group set-up solely for you to engage, where you will be joined by fellow Barra Atlantic Gin followers.
It’s been over a week since we launched our new still Barra Atlantic Gin and we’ve been overwhelmed by the tremendous feedback received so far! Not only from our customers but also from our friends, who happen to be passionate Gin Professionals/Bloggers!
This week has taken us by storm as we journey into our next era. We’ve not only launched our new still Barra Atlantic Gin this week, but have also launched our brand-new website in collaboration to mark this very special milestone.
As we continue to grow and progress on our journey of distilling on the edge, we are always delighted to be working with like-minded and independent companies similar to us. This week we’d love to share with you, our collaboration with Salar Smokehouse on our neighbouring Isle of South Uist.
Established by the Gin Cooperative, International Scottish Gin Day is a celebration of all the incredible gin’s we have here in Scotland. This year’s celebration takes place on Saturday 24 October and we couldn’t be more excited.
Our Barra Atlantic Gin has our Island home and surroundings running right through it. From our branding to the taste of our Island Spirit we are all about the adventure of distilling on the edge. We’re extremely excited to be working with a fellow Island brand that’s just as passionate as we are about our own products. We are of course referring to ishga skincare.
As a small family run business, we are always aiming high, working hard and setting goals in order to progress and develop further, not only as a business but also as a team. Today we are delighted to welcome our newest addition to the Isle of Barra Distillers family!
Our Distillery shop is OPEN! With the rules and restrictions lifting slightly, we have taken the mandatory steps to enable a safe experience while shopping with us locally. It’s been a while, but we’re looking forward to catching up with new and familiar faces going forward!
