About

The adventurous spirit of the Barra people inspires this unique gin. The award-winning Barra Atlantic Gin is distilled from 17 specially selected botanicals, capturing the essence of the beautiful island. With the key botanicals hand foraged from the shores that surround their Island home on the edge of the Atlantic. Every drop of this Island spirit distilled, bottled and labelled right there on the Isle of Barra, from their Family Distillery.

The signature botanical, the carrageen seaweed, is what makes this gin special. Also known by its scientific name chondrus crispus, carrageen seaweed is a red algae native to the cool Atlantic waters skirting europe’s rocky coastlines, including the beautiful Isle of Barra.

Like many of the other seaweed varieties found on the Scottish coast, carrageen is harvested after the spring tides, when the water is furthest from the shore. Once harvested, each piece of carrageen seaweed is washed through with fresh water and left outdoors for 5-6 weeks for the wind and sun to dry or ‘bleach’ as it is known on Barra. Once the carrageen has dried and has changed colour to a light white/purple it is then ready to be used to create this award-winning spirit, the Barra Atlantic Gin.

  • Tasting Notes:
