Lussa Gin

Southern Highlands & Islands

At the northern end of Jura island, three local women have set up this distillery in the former stables of the Ardlussa estate. It produces gin that's flavoured with local botanicals. Phone ahead to book a tour (£6), which includes a taste of the refreshing lemony spirit.
