Mothering Sunday

barra gin, barra distillers, mothers day
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.

Mother’s Day is a personal, heart-felt day for us all. It especially means a lot to us here at the Isle of Barra Distillers. While we celebrate the beautiful gift of motherhood and its privileges, we reflect on how incredible it is to enjoy this day with our loved ones.


There’s no denying that motherhood has it’s share of ups and downs. It is after all the hardest job with no payment that we experience throughout our lifetime. And yet, we wouldn’t change it for the world.

This Mother’s Day, we’re counting our blessings and raising a glass of our Barra Atlantic Gin to our loved ones far and wide. Sharing the taste of our island spirit with those special to us.


For the true taste of Barra, why not try our Barra Atlantic Gin neat this Mother’s Day?


Pour a 50ml measure of Barra Atlantic Gin over ice, in a lowball glass. Sip away and allow the botanicals to burst through your tastebuds.


We also recommend you try our preferred serve this Mother’s Day.


Pour a 50ml measure of Barra Atlantic Gin over ice, in a low or highball glass. Squeeze a few drops of grapefruit into the glass and slide the wedge into the glass. Add a splash of Walter Gregor’s Original Tonic Water, stir and sip away.


Wherever you are in the world, we wish you all a warm heart-felt Mother’s Day.


Slàinte Mhath!
