The Borders Distillery®, the first Scotch Whisky distillery in the Scottish Borders since 1837, was commissioned in March of 2018. This new distillery is dedicated to making great whisky and to capturing the spirit of the Borders.
Our hometown, Hawick, has a famous history of manufacturing, where cashmere is king and where tweed was invented. The distillery is in a landmark building in the centre of town, making us both familiar and new. There is a spirit of industry and enterprise here that inspires us in all that we do.
Occupying the site of the former Hawick Electric Company, we have undertaken a careful and complete renovation of the building to a fully functioning distillery.
With a committed attention to detail and a real acknowledgement of the building’s history every tiny details has been covered. From the restoration of the original 1930 crane to the lead welded windows this is a build that we are immensely proud of. Why not come see for yourself.
