So high was the demand for the limited edition gin bottles from Isle of Harris Distillers, they sold out in hours! Want to bag yourself a bottle? Read on to find out how.
When the Isle of Harris Distillery launched their new Harris Cèilidh Bottle last month they were confident that customers would be excited to buy one.
Each half bottle, hand-thrown by ceramicist Rupert Blamire in an intensive 7-step pottery process, was designed for sharing their island spirit with friends and family.
Echoing the iconic glass bottle of their award-winning Isle of Harris Gin, the smaller bottle reflects the colours of the island’s seas and sky with the recognisable ripples, cork and hidden latin motto.
The new bottles proved incredibly popular with Batch #1 selling out in just a few hours online and at the distillery in Tarbert. Batch #2 a few weeks later sold out in minutes, prompting socially-distanced queues at the distillery door and even breaking the shop website temporarily.
For Batch #3, again limited to just a few hundred bottles, the distillery has decided to sell the Cèilidh Bottles in an online raffle. Those wishing to buy simply have to enter their details online at www.harrisdistillery.com/ceilidh and 300 winners will be drawn on 30/10/20 Each winner will then be sent a link to purchase a single bottle online.
A second draw from Batch #4 will take place on 16/11/20.
Batch #3 and 4 will be last Cèilidh bottles available in 2020 with more coming in early 2021.
