The expansive ocean surrounding the beautiful Isle of Barra has inspired the island-born couple’s adventure into the world of distilling.
With positive steps already being taken to establish the island's first distillery, the company’s primary goal is to have this up and running as soon as possible. So for the time being the Isle of Barra Distillers have linked up with a London Distiller to produce the first few batches of Barra Gin. The ambitious couple are confident of fulfilling their desire to give something back to the island and, in turn, for the community to feel proud of the Isle of Barra Distillers.
Michael feels that “above everything else that we can achieve from this journey, it is the thought of both giving something back to this beautiful island and also putting the Isle of Barra on the ‘gin map’ that drives us forward. We feel we owe it to the island and its people - we have the opportunity to do something great and something great is what we are going to do”.
It’s this passion and belief that must surely make the story of the Isle of Barra Distillers one to remember.
