Isle of Harris, The Hearach Single Malt Whisky (700ml)


Isle of Harris

The Hearach Single Malt Whisky

46% ABV




The Hearach is the first, historic single malt whisky from the Isle of Harris, as they revive the distilling traditions lost during the Pabbay clearances of the 1840s.

This dram is the result of a considered conversation between people and place, coming together to create an elegant spirit of complexity and character. 

The work of the island's men and women intertwines with the natural world to weave together an Outer Hebridean whisky of distinction. 

Every drop of this new dram is being distilled by local people to produce a special spirit which has been matured, married, and bottled here in this elemental place, and nowhere else.

The Hearach is bottled at 46% abv, non-chill filtered, and free from artificial colouring.

Released in batches of around 12,000 bottles

Each batch is 'married' for a minimum of 12 weeks

The youngest spirit in each batch is 5 years old

Matured in first-fill ex-Bourbon casks, Oloroso and Fino butts

Lightly peated (12-15 ppm)

“ I get a gentle peat smoke on the first sip which reminds me of island home fires burning when I was growing up. It comes along with a toasted maltiness. I can also taste homemade apple sauce and smell machair flowers, particularly white clover which springs up on our west coast every summer. Mixed spices appear, and an old-fashioned sweetness from things like candied ginger, vanilla, and honeycomb. Finally, there’s a long, clotted-cream note, mixed with a lasting sense of new leather. ”
