Swinney to visit new distillery

Publised date : 14 Nov 2018

Perthshire North MSP, Mr John Swinney, is to visit Highland Boundary, a new distillery set up within his constituency.

The distillery, the brainchild of Dr Marian Bruce and Simon Montador, is producing Scandinavian-style spirits using locally sourced Scottish botanicals. By using handpicked botanicals, Highland Boundary seek to capture the flavours of the Scottish wilderness. Highland Boundary received Interface funding to assist with the creation of their first spirit, which they developed in conjunction with the Heriot Watt University International Centre for Brewing and Distilling

Commenting, Mr Swinney said:

“I am very much looking forward to visiting Highland Boundary. Marian and Simon are incredibly passionate about their work, and I am confident that their first spirit will serve as a fitting tribute to both Scotland and their local community of Alyth.

“Marian and Simon have long been active in their community, from co-founding the Alyth Development Trust to operating Kirklandbank Farm. Moreover, they are passionate about developing local jobs. The latest diversification of their business portfolio is an exciting opportunity for a thriving local business to continue growing.

“I wish Marian and Simon well with their new venture, and I am delighted by the positive reviews their spirit is receiving, along with the early progress their business is making.”

Dr Marian Bruce, co-founder of Highland Boundary, added:

“After three years in development we’re excited to now launch Highland Boundary and the first of our new Wild Scottish Spirits. Our aim is to bring to life the flavours of the Scottish wilderness and, thanks to the help of Dr Annie Hall and the Heriot Watt University International Centre for Brewing and Distilling, we are confident we have achieved this goal.
“We are also delighted to announce that we have recently agreed a distribution deal with Woodwinters, one of the premiere wine and spirits distribution companies in Scotland. This deal will allow more people to enjoy our unique flavours, and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to reach such a wide customer base.”
