The Isle of Harris is a small island in the Outer Hebrides, off the far north-western coast of Scotland, on the edge of the wild Atlantic Ocean. The Isle of Harris Distillery, or the Social Distillery as it is often referred to, was opened in October 2015, in the small harbour village of Tarbert.

The Refill Project was 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. Isle of Harris Distillery began exploring the potential of new refill solutions by experimenting with aluminum as a high-quality material with exceptional recyclability, lightness, and excellent carbon footprint figures.
