Bon-Accord

Bon Accord Soft Drinks, an iconic Scottish brand of the 20th century, was first established in 1909. Bon Accord was a family business with strong Scottish roots. Our famous glass bottles, crates and lorries, were a familiar sight in homes and on the streets of Scotland for generations and an integral part of many people’s childhoods.  Relaunched after a 16 years break, we are still a family business, but times have changed and with a new generation at the helm, we have a new approach! The new range of Scottish, carbonated soft drinks and mixers are geared towards health-conscious adult consumers, using only natural ingredients; honey, coconut nectar and fruit juices.  Bon Accord Soft Drinks: Discover what generations of flavour experience taste like.

 

Cross Borders Brewery was founded by Gary Munckton and Jonathan (Jonny) Wilson in 2016. The brewery is young, and ambitious about crafting quality, distinctive, and delicious beers that explore new frontiers and cross new borders.

Dalkeith has a rich brewing heritage, and beer was brewed there until the 1960s. Gary and Jonny picked this beautiful town for their brewery, keen to take up the mantle and continue the long and proud history of brewing in Dalkeith.

 
Firkin-Gin

FIRKIN Gin isn’t just another ‘craft gin’… it’s the classic London-style dry gin spirit you love, with an exciting Scottish twist!

Following a four times distillation with ten botanicals, we rest the gin in one of our juicy American Oak whisky casks. It is during this time that the colour of the gin changes to an alluring golden hue and the delicate notes of toffee, caramel, vanilla and sweet oak are infused into the spirit before being bottled at 46% abv.

Crafted in small batches, the uniqueness and quirkiness of FIRKIN Gin allows the gins to enjoy rapid growth within the UK, and it is featured in "15 Scottish gins we recommend you try right now" by Scotsman Food & Drink. The premium quality of the product and its RRP allow buyers to enjoy a good profit margin. The gin, packed with flavours, is an excellence sipping gin (or on the rocks), as well as in cocktails.

 

Speyside Craft Brewery started over five years ago at a birthday party. A keen home brewer since his early teens, brewery MD Seb Jones created a beer for his mum’s 50th birthday bash. Guests said it was so good that he should open his own brewery.

Seb’s vision from the start was to create a range of beers that would be a treat to most palates, whilst have some fun creating seasonal specials. He has recently collaborated with the oldest independent Speyside whisky distillers, Glenfiddich, to create an IPA-finished malt whisky, which is being launched globally 2016/17. The IPA beer to accompany this experimental whisky will be available late 2016.
