Barra Serves

Whilst it’s hard to stray away from a good old-fashioned G&T, sometimes it’s nice to mix it up and try something new. Why not indulge in one of our suggested serves at home.

 

Our Barra Atlantic Gin has very recently been on a photoshoot. Modelling alongside a new range of suggested serves inspired by our Island Spirit, we’re delighted to share our recipes and gallery with you.
