The Hearach Single Malt First Release Batch 3 70cl 46% ABV



Each batch has natural variation due to individual choice of casks and differing ‘marrying’ periods.

The Hearach is the first, historic single malt whisky from our island distillery and the Isle of Harris. Like the iconic Harris Tweed cloth created here for generations, our first historic whisky is woven from the hands of island people and the place we call home, intimately intertwining to produce an elegant spirit of complexity and character. This special connection between people and place continues to this day with every drop of The Hearach created by Isle of Harris hands here in the Outer Hebrides. Our recipe uses spirit matured in ex-bourbon casks, oloroso and fino butts.

“At first I smell a very, very light peat. Then it’s the wonderful smell of machair, like the blankets of wild flowers at beaches like Horgabost in summer. There’s a wine-gum aroma, I was very partial to them when I was a child particularly the berry ones. I get warm spices, like a freshly baked fruit cake or ginger loaf. Now there’s a sweetness like caramel bubbling away in a pan. There are just so many layers, it changes all the time. The peat returns when I drink it, like the ash of the fire in my granny’s croft kitchen in Seilebost. I taste sweet apples, I had a real thing for them when I was having my boy Rory! It’s just so lovely, light and elegant, a very special dram.”
