About Borders Distillery

The Borders distillery, situated in the town of Hawick in the Scottish Borders, is a multifaceted production facility crafting malt whisky, gin, and vodka. Founded in 2018 by George Tait, Tony Roberts, Tim Carton, and John Fordyce, it represents the first Scotch Whisky distillery in the region since 1837. 

Operational since March 2018, it opened its doors to the public on May 1st of the same year. The distillery combines traditional elements with modern architecture, boasting two wash stills, two spirit stills, and a custom-made Carter Head still by Forsyths of Rothes. Their product range includes malt whisky under the “Clan Fraser” and “Clan Fraser Reserve” labels, alongside the innovative “Lower East Side” blended malt. 

Notably, their “WS:01 Borders Malt & Rye” marked the first blend to depart the Scottish Borders region in 185 years, symbolising a milestone for the distillery. With barley sourced entirely from the Borders region, the distillery operates at full capacity, aiming to produce up to 1.6 million litres of alcohol.

Borders is a renowned distillery located in Scotland with a rich heritage in producing fine whiskies. The rarity and quality of their products makes them desirable to collectors and enthusiasts, only increasing their value over time.

Whisky typically gains value as it ages and matures in the cask. The longer it remains in the cask, the more it has the potential to develop complexity and depth of flavors. We offer cask purchase programs that allow you to select the type of cask and aging duration, providing you with control over the maturation process.

Buying a cask allows you to own a unique piece of Bladnoch’s Kirkcowan Spirit production and a part of Bladnoch’s history. As the availability of aged and limited-edition whiskies decreases over time, the scarcity of these bottles can drive up their value.

Whisky has experienced growing popularity worldwide, particularly with the rise of collectors and investors seeking alternative assets. If the demand for premium Scotch whisky remains strong or continues to increase, it could positively impact the investment potential of your Kirkcowan Spirit (Bladnoch) cask. Recently we have seen the price of a standard bottle of Bladnoch rise from £40 to £80.
