Celebrate Father’s Day with the Borders Distillery


Father’s Day is the perfect excuse to celebrate the incredible dads in our lives and what better way to show your love and appreciation than gifting him one of our Borders Distillery whiskies?

Whether it’s for your father, husband or partner, there’s something here for everyone in our guide to the best Borders Distillery whiskies and other gift ideas for the special man in your life. Also, bonus! If you purchase any 70cl bottle of the Borders Distillery whisky (before 16th June), you’ll receive two tickets to our award-winning distillery tour, (more on that later).


WS:01 Borders Malt & Rye Whisky

Some say there’s nothing new in Scotch whisky. We say, think again! Our WS:01 Borders Malt & Rye became the first Scotch whisky to leave the Scottish Borders since 1837 when it was released in 2022. We distilled a small batch of rye spirit and matured it in the same fresh-fill bourbon casks as the malt whisky before marrying them together to create an aromatic blended whisky.

On the nose, you’ll find soft spice and toasted wood. On the palate, baked fruit and buttery shortcrust pastry, before a lovely warm custardy finish.

ABV 40%

WS:02 The Long & Short of It Whisky

WS:02 The Long & Short of It was born from our distillers’ experimentation in fermentation. Why experiment in fermentation, you might ask? Well, fermentation plays a huge part in the outcome of flavour. So, our distillers set to work experimenting with very short fermentation times of 55 hours and very long ones of 150 hours to produce a whisky with an intriguing blend of the two, long and short. Both batches were then distilled and matured in first fill ex-bourbon barrels, before being married together with single grain.

On the palate, the short fermentation reveals fresh bursts of gooseberry skin, citrus zest, and green apple which plays perfectly with the notes of fig pudding, butterscotch, and sultanas from the long fermentation.

ABV 40%

WS:01 and WS:02 are both available as a combination giftbox.


Clan Fraser Reserve Whisky

Clan Fraser Reserve Whisky is a distinctive blend of Scotland’s finest single malt and grain whiskies. Clan Fraser is a Scottish Borders clan that originated in France before settling in the Scottish Borders, and then eventually every corner of the world. Representing the rich heritage of the Fraser clan tradition and the welcoming spirit of Scottish Borders hospitality, this blended whisky offers a subtle sweetness, a delectable velvet smooth texture, and a comforting warmth.

You’ll find hints of butter and honey on the nose, enriched by the fruity undertones of raisin and fig on the palate, all wrapped up in hints of spice.

40% ABV

Also available as a giftset with two TBD Glencairn glasses.


Lower East Side Whisky

Whether in the trendy bars of Lower East Side Manhattan, or at home in Scotland, our Lower East Side Whisky is a Scottish creation that mixes effortlessly wherever it finds itself, be it served straight, on the rocks, or in a Manhattan! Bold yet balanced, it’s a perfect easy-drinking Scotch whisky for cocktails and is specially crafted from a blend of single malt whiskies from various regions across Scotland.

You’ll find notes of vanilla and oak on the nose, almond and orchard fruit on the palate, with just a hint of banana and subtle smoke on the finish.

40% ABV

Also available as a giftset with two rocks glasses.


TBD Whisky Glass

An icon within the world of Scotch whisky, the Glencairn glass presents no better way to savour that special dram.  This TBD whisky glass is etched with The Borders Distillery name, making it the perfect complement to any of our whiskies.


The Borders Distillery Tours

Currently included with every purchase of a 70cl bottle of whisky, our award-winning tours have just opened for the summer season and are not-to-be-missed.

On the Borders Distillery tours, our expert distillers will lead you through the production process and reveal what we do to give our spirits their unique quality and taste. You’ll get to see the production process in action, including mashing, fermentation, and distillation – where you’ll learn why our four copper pot stills are named George, Tony, Tim, and John.

At the end of the tour, there’s a chance to sample two of our spirits in the distillery bar, as well as take your Glencairn glass home with you. The drivers among your party are always accommodated, so we’ll provide two samples for them to take away.


The Borders Distillery Gift Voucher

If Dad would rather choose his own gift, why not buy a TBD gift voucher for him, redeemable against any of our products. Just select the amount you want, and the TBD gift voucher will be sent to your email address, which you can download and share.

You can also shop our full range of gifts here.

Whichever whisky or whisky gift you choose for the man in your life, let’s raise a glass to the fathers who inspire, guide and nurture us.

Happy Father’s Day!
