The Hearach is woven from people and place, a whisky which truly reflects the best of the residents island home and the local men and women who make it. ‘Hearach’ is the Scots Gaelic name for a native of the Isle of Harris.

 “There’s toffee and caramel notes on the nose, like ‘Werther’s Original’ sweets. It also smells fresh and green to me. There’s a slight smokiness, reminding me of the trees behind my Granny’s old house which fell in an island storm, and we used the logs for firewood. When I sip it, there’s a nice pepperiness and kick of spice, and more green apple freshness. The smoke comes back if you leave it a while and the flavours are always changing. It’s subtle and light, but there’s a lot going on in the glass.”

Tasting Notes by Lauren MacSween
Scalpay, Isle of Harris

 “ The sun has been breaking through the shrouds of grey cloud, while across the island’s crofts early green shoots have tentatively appeared with the gorse bushes bringing the first bursts of yellow. It’s still too early to speak of spring but it feels like the sap is finally rising and soon there will be lambs and new life. Our distillery doors have opened to the public for the first time this year, and we’re looking forward to the season as more visitors make their way to our shores to learn about our elemental Outer Hebridean dram. All in all, as batch 11 is being bottled, it’s a good time raise a dram to new

Mike Donald, Chief Storyteller.
