The Harris Journal: Life Takes Time – Scotch Whisky News

With the distillery doors open to the public and our peat fire lit once more we’re delighted to be giving a warm welcome to those who have managed to join us in Tarbert as lockdown eases.

We’re also very proud of all our local health service staff and vaccination volunteers who have ensured such a safe and swift roll-out of inoculations here in the Outer Hebrides.

Every member of our distillery team has now had at least one of their Covid injections and we’re grateful to NHS Western Isles for all their efforts over the last twelve months.

So, as we look ahead to better days our attention is turning to the arrival of The Hearach Single Malt as we get closer to the day we can share our first historic dram with the world.

Exactly when that will be, only time and taste will tell but expect to hear a lot more from us on the whisky front over the coming months as the story unfolds.

Tonight, we get things started with a visit to our cask warehouse in Ardhasaig as more samples are drawn to take stock of our progress. Join us over on this week ‘s Journal story for more…

And, a big thanks to all our US friends for such an enthusiastic response to last week’s news that we’ve arrived on your shores.

I’ll get around to replying to all your emails eventually but we’ve enjoyed reading every word of them so far!

Have a great week, from all of us at the Harris Distillery…

Le dùrachdan,

Mike Donald
Isle of Harris Distillery Storyteller
