Isle of Harris Distillery & AS. Apothecary collaboration

With the ever-increasing pace of life, I often crave the stillness of my childhood, when days were leisurely and discoveries a plenty. Maybe it is one of the reasons why I have renewed appreciation of skincare artisans, backed by extensive knowledge, creativity and working alongside the seasonality of nature. Amanda Saurin, of AS. Apothecary is definitely one of those artisans and her recent collaboration with Isle of Harris Distillery on a small line of products is something that I wanted to bring in the spotlight for your attention.

Standing out in the Atlantic, on the far northwestern edge of Scotland, Isle of Harris is a breath-taking place that needs to be visited to be believed, according to Amanda. The distillery itself was born out of the desire to combine island’s natural resources and beauty and residents skills in order to address economic problems that a small place like this can experience. The Tarbert Ten, a group of ten locals who form the foundation of the team that is tasked with the responsibilities of the day-to-day running of the Harris distillery, combine lots of interesting skill sets, from an engineering background to hotel hospitality business to a bagpiper.

The way Amanda’s career has evolved is an interesting one, deserving a separate, long article, but let me just say here that she doesn’t approach people but rather people approach her and she dives into the chosen projects with an enthusiasm of a child.
