Sound of Jura Seaweeds

“ Sound of Jura Seaweeds is a small-scale enterprise based in Tayvallich. Lottie has a Crown Estate Licence to hand-harvest seaweed in the Sound of Jura which, thanks to its cold running tides and exposed shoreline, is home to most species of the 650 or so algae found in UK waters. Her harvesting process is a strictly ecologically sensitive practice. At a low tide she kayaks to a remote shoreline and selectively cuts the live seaweed with scissors - rather like trimming hair! Lottie is also a keen snorkeler and produces artwork from dived for and pressed seaweed.”

What we stock: dried dulse; seaweed salt; and an assortment of high quality, seaweed-print greeting cards.

Lussa Gin

Lussa Gin Logo

“Lussa Gin is an expression of our wild landscape on the Isle of Jura, situated off Scotland’s west coast. For us that means growing, gathering and distilling fifteen zesty and aromatic botanicals so we can pack as much local flavour into every bottle as we can. At cooler temperatures you can actually see the botanical oils as a faint haze in the bottle – if you’re lucky, you’ll see a flash of them when you add tonic. Because every batch is hand made using a traditional still, the temperature where the oils show themselves will vary. What never varies is the care we take in growing, gathering and distilling Lussa Gin at the north end of our breathtaking, windswept isle.”

Beinn an Tuirc Gins

Beinn an Tuirc Gin Company Logo

“We have been producing award winning spirits at our small, family-run Kintyre distillery since 2017, including our signature Kintyre Gin. We use our very own renewable energy, powered from a 100kw hydro-electric scheme at our home on Torrisdale Castle Estate. Our water is sourced from the hill from which we take our name. ‘Beinn an Tuirc’ translates from gaelic as ‘The Hill of the Wild Boar’ and is the highest point in Kintyre, located above our distillery building.”

Isle of Arran Cheese Shop

“The prevailing winds being South Westerly straight off the Atlantic means the Isle of Arran can deservedly claim to be 'Clean and Green'. The Cheese Shop sits on the footprint of what was the original dairy for the Home Farm which supplied the Dukes and Duchesses of Brodick Castle for several centuries.”

What we stock: smoky garlic cheddar, Arran mustard flavoured cheddar, cracked black peppercorn cheddar, oak smoked cheddar, and caramelised onion cheddar.
