The Isle of Harris Distillery Refill Project

As gin drinkers become increasingly environmentally conscious and aware of their contribution towards achieving zero waste, The Isle of Harris Distillery team have responded by launching The Refill Project – created to address the growing demand from customers to allow them to keep the award-winning, treasured glass Isle of Harris Gin bottle instead of throwing it out.

Although the iconic Harris Gin glass bottle is fully recyclable, the beauty of the design makes it difficult for customers to ways part with it. So Isle of Harris Distillery began exploring the potential of new refill solutions by experimenting with aluminium as a high-quality material with exceptional recyclability, lightness, and excellent carbon footprint figures.

The result is the new 500ml Refill Bottle, designed to refill the much-loved glass Isle of Harris Gin bottle when it’s time for us gin-lovers to top up.

The new Refill Bottle is only available through a limited annual subscription service initially as the first stages of
the refill project begins.

“We’ve been looking for ways to reduce our carbon footprint without losing the pleasure of pouring from our lovely
gin bottle. We learnt that aluminium can be the most recyclable of materials and so this new subscription service looks like a great solution” – says Simon Erlanger, Managing Director, Isle of Harris Distillery.

The 1-year subscription service is available now at, £345.50.
This includes:
• A 500ml aluminium Refill Bottle of Isle of Harris Gin sent directly to your door.
• 1 of 12 Isle of Harris landscape photographic postcards by Peter Kwasniewski to collect and keep.
• An exclusive shop offer code to use with 1 of 12 specially chosen independent island partners.
• Our monthly Harris Eco E-Newsletter sent to your inbox with environmental stores and additional offers.
• Your first bottle (including shipping) is free.

The first Refill Bottle of your new subscription will be shipped to you in 3-5 working days. Subsequent refill
bottles will then be sent to you after the 20th of the following month and each month thereafter.

The Refill Bottle will be delivered in a Jiffy Green bag, lined with high performance, cushioning paper fibres
instead of plastic bubbles making them fully biodegradable, recyclable, and compostable.
