Workshop Series

Some say there’s nothing new in Scotch Whisky. We say, think again.
Our Workshop Series showcases a collection of experimental liquid that will form stepping stones to the long-awaited release of our own Single Malt. WS:00 & WS:01 provide the first glimpses into Borders Distillery style and creativity.

WS:00 New Make Spirit

The building block of everything we do. This spirit will one day transform into our own Single Malt – the first to leave the Scottish Borders since 1837.

Made from Scottish Borders barley – every grain grown within 30 miles of the distillery. Straight from the still, the spirit holds a peppery fire, but also carries a rich apple and pear character with underlying tropic fruit and grassy notes.



WS:01 Borders Malt & Rye

In 2019, we distilled a small batch of rye spirit and matured it in the same fresh-fill bourbon casks as the malt, to create this remarkable and aromatic whisky. This is the first Blended Scotch Whisky to leave the Scottish Borders in 185 years, and the first expression of the Workshop Series from the Borders Distillery.



WS:02 The Long & Short of it

For our latest release in the series, our distillers played with time in the Wash House to produce something we’re really excited about. The result; a blend that gives you short bursts of flavour, and long moments to savour.

The Long & Short of it is about enjoying your whisky, your way – be that long or short!
