Our Spirits

Every day in the Distillery we distil from locally-grown barley to create ‘New Make Spirit’. Much of this is laid down in oak casks to begin its long, slow journey to becoming Single Malt Scotch Whisky. But we also use some of our New Make to charge our Carterhead Still, allowing us to make William Kerr’s Borders Gin.

Beyond our own distilling, our expert spirit-making team also blend and balance two excellent Scotch whiskies.

Take a look at the range of spirits we produce…

William Kerr’s Borders Gin

William Kerr’s Borders Gin is 100% made in Scotland – juniper berries and botanicals gently steamed in the vapour of our own barley spirit.

William Kerr was born in the Hawick in the Scottish Borders in 1779, and developed a passion for plants and gardening. In 1804 he travelled to Asia where he gained a reputation as a plant hunter.

As an accomplished botanist, we think Kerr would have quietly approved of our Carterhead Still – one of only a handful in operation. Unlike regular gin stills, the Carterhead gently steams the botanicals rather than boiling them, capturing more of the subtle aromas and complex flavours.

William Kerr’s Borders Gin has outstanding depth and taste. Enjoy it poured over ice, with a good tonic water, and a slice of orange.

Clan Fraser Reserve

Clan Fraser Reserve Blended Scotch Whisky is a unique blend of grain and single malt whiskies from the heart of Scotland.

This delightful blend was inspired by our overall vision for our company established in the Scottish Borders – the same area that the Frasers (Fraisiers – Stawberry pickers) came to from Anjou, France over 900 years ago.

Honey and buttery on the nose with hints of cinnamon and vanilla. With notes of raisins and figs, it has a light sweetness, and is deliciously smooth with a rounded finish.

This is a lovely whisky reflecting the Spirit of the Borders and the warmth of its people.
