Uisge Slàinte


Uisge Slàinte

Having risen through the strata of Precambrian metamorphic rocks, the healing well waters of Lewis are borne from a unique environmental and historical context.

Collected in time honoured tradition by walking sunwise three times around the well and placing an offering before drawing the water, the Uisge Slàinte is bottled in situ and capped with a beeswax seal.

Not for consumption.
