Highland Boundary captures the unique essence of Scotland’s wild plants, distilling them in to wild-inspired natural spirits and liqueurs with new and remarkable flavours.
Highland Boundary began trading in 2018 and we create and distil novel spirits flavoured with hand-picked, local botanicals. The development of new and unique flavours with a distinct Scottish provenance and terroir is key to our success.
Dr Marian Bruce is the designer and distiller and she is helped by a small and passionate team. We care about the environment; we harvest sustainably; only use recyclable materials in our bottling and packaging; and have renewable energy sources for our business.
Our name comes from our location. The distillery is in a refurbished milking shed at Kirklandbank Farm, near Alyth and on the Highland Boundary Fault, the geological dividing line between the highlands and lowlands of Scotland. Our spirits are made using botanicals collected in the forests of the Highlands and grain spirit grown in lowlands.
We believe we will enhance Scotland’s reputation for high quality food and drinks production with the inclusion of modern, innovative and impactful botanical spirits.
