North Uist Distillery Co. was launched in 2019 by Kate & Jonny, two North Uist natives who left to experience life on the mainland but found themselves being drawn back home. Both have long family connections to the islands and both their parents are integral to the community. Jonny had a dream to use his background in distilling and brewing to add a new chapter to his family's story on the island. Everything they do is inspired by nature and the beautiful Scottish island's surroundings. When the distillery is complete, it will be the first legal distillery on the island. Currently the range consists of a gin and a liqueur but single malt whisky very much forms part of their plans.
