The Isle of Harris Distillery is ending its industry first click-and-collect service following its announcement that it now has over 100 approved retail partners.
Until now, the gin was only available direct from the distillery in the small Outer Hebridean village of Tarbert, either online or on-site. They also operated an industry-first click-and-collect service through a UK-wide network of distribution partners, where customers could pick-up a bottle after ordering online.
Now, there are over 100 of these former distribution partners who have become official Isle of Harris Gin stockists and able to sell their award-winning gin to their customers.
The popular range of gift sets, glassware and tinctures are still available exclusively online store.
Commenting on the move away from click-and-collect, Mike Donald, the chief storyteller at the distillery, said: “The click-and-collect service was a great way to help our customers get hold of Isle of Harris Gin without waiting for a delivery.
“But, as we’ve grown it’s become increasingly time-consuming to manage. This transformation of our partners to approved retailers will make life a little easier for us, our partners, and most importantly our customers when it comes to buying a bottle.”
Kyri Sotiri from Soho Wine Supply in London, one of the first new official stockists is delighted with the new partnership: “We are excited to be a part of the next phase in this distillery’s evolution and are proud to be associated with a company focused on bringing new life and opportunity to its community.”
The company is looking to expand the network of stockists, but the distillery is keen to ensure that their partners will always be carefully chosen to deliver an exclusive customer experience.
