FULL OF ORIGIN. FULL OF FLAVOUR. FULL OF LIFE.

WHY WE DID IT

Loomshed’s home is the Outer Hebrides. Go to the very north west corner of Scotland and turn left for 30 miles out into the Atlantic.

Rugged granite mountains, soaring eagles, deep sea lochs and endless white-sand beaches. A special place where you maintain traditions, respect the elements and look out for each other.

Loomshed aims to bring you a flavour of our home. Delicious products, honest rather than fancy that rekindle memories of the Hebrides wherever you are in the world.

A range of locally-made Hebridean food and drink that celebrates our landscape, our crofting heritage but most importantly the character of the people who live here.

And in doing so give young Hebrideans a reason to stay, or equally return and make their careers on the islands rather than seeking adventure and opportunity further afield

A young islander will take charge of each product in our range, as we grow, to showcase their talents, develop their business within the Loomshed family, and breathe new life into the islands.

OUR CRAFT BREWERY

Loomshed launched with a craft brewery on the edge of Tarbert in Harris making a range of local speciality beers.

As the saying goes, good things come in small packages. What our brewery lacks in scale it more than makes up for in scenery – looking back as it does over the Minch towards the Scottish mainland.

On the outskirts of Tarbert, the main village on the Isle of Harris, on the road out to Scalpay and a quick hop from where the ferry arrives each day from Skye. Look for the crofter on the side of the building….

Alas when planning the brewery, we didn’t anticipate a global pandemic.  Our brewer decided it was time for a new challenge, and we are recruiting a replacement.

The brewery is currently closed, and we are working hard to have it open as soon as possible.  We hope to have beer available again in Autumn 2021.

WHAT WILL YOU HAVE?

We’ve three “house” beers, hand-made in the brewery, both named after island characters.

Our “CROFTER” IPA (or Island Pale Ale) is named after the small-scale collaborative farmers who fought against oppression for the right to farm their land. A “British” IPA with robust malt foundation with two hop varieties to add depth of flavour. Look for earthy pine-cones and green-tea ‘matcha’ followed by fruity citrus and blackcurrant.

“IASGAIR” means fisherman in the islands’ native Gaelic. Our Craft lager pays tribute to the resolve of all Hebrideans down the centuries, who have gone to sea. A clean bite from the hops gives way to biscuit-malt sweetness. Together they create a balanced taste, and a refreshing but full-flavoured beer.

“POACHER”  is a classic Dark Scottish Ale made with roasted malts and a hint of smoke reminiscent of an island peat moor mixed with the  burnt-caramel sweetness of Scottish tablet

We will also have a range of special and seasonal brews for you to try in the tap-room.

WE HAVE BEEN FORCED TO KEEP THE BREWERY CLOSED UNTIL AUTUMN 2021.

THE LOOMSHED DELI

Our new deli is in the heart of the village on Tarbert Main Street, just up from the distillery selling a range of Hebridean foods for you to enjoy.

The crofting traditions and clean air give the islands and the waters around them an unviable reputation for fresh produce.

Superb seafood, livestock reared the right way, and tradition of home baking.

Pop in for a rich freshly-made espresso or cappuccino, roasted especially for us by our friends at Dear Green in Glasgow.  Choose a delicious home-made cake to go with it.  Choose from a range of gourmet sandwiches and soft drinks, ideal for an impromptu picnic overlooking  one of the famous Harris beaches.  We also have a range of gourmet foods from some of the best food producers in Scotland.
