Isle of Barra Distillers releases its first rum


Today see the launch of the Isle of Barra Distillers very first Island Dark Rum – “inspired by the connection between Isle of Barra Distillers’ island home and the expansive ocean that surrounds it”.

Founders Michael and Katie Morrison, explained, “While our story progresses, our family distillery continually grows. Naturally, as does our product range of fine spirits. Filled with interest and ambition, we understand that perfection takes time.

“Releasing a Rum from the Isle of Barra has always been an interest and a goal of ours and now the time is right for us to explore this spirit”.

Using botanicals including carrageen seaweed, hand-harvested from the shores of Barra, the rum is described as strong, bold and rustic, whilst the finish is ‘as smooth as the fine golden sands found on the West side’.
