Isle of Harris Gin gift sets
Price: £70 – £90
For me, Isle of Harris Gin comes in the most beautiful packaging. In fact, it’s one of my favourite gins full-stop. It’s no surprise then, that the gin is highly giftable.
However, Isle of Harris Distillers don’t simply rely on the beauty of the bottle. and the gift boxes were given a makeover in 2021. To keep consistency with the glass inside, the box features flecks of copper and sugar kelp, as well as subtle contours embossed on the box, reminiscent of the iconic bottle.
A lot of thought has also gone into the unboxing experience. Each layer reveals more information about the distillery, island and botanicals used in Isle of Harris Gin.
To top it off, the glassware is exceptional and you can now choose from lowball, highball and copa glasses – the latter of which are new for 2021.
