The Borders Distillery is the first Scotch Whisky distillery in the Scottish Borders since 1837 and was commissioned in March of 2018.
The new distillery is dedicated to making great whisky and other spirits and to capturing the spirit of the Borders.
The distillery is set up to produce a light, fragrant and floral style of malt whisky – a very typical Lowlands character.
Long fermentation using a cloudy wort gives the spirit a malty fruitiness, while distillation in large lampglass stills with plenty of copper contact will heighten its fruity and floral qualities. Maturation will take place in predominantly ex-Bourbon barrels,although a mix of Portuguese red wine and rum casks will be used.
