What are Botanical Spirits?
Naturally made and lovingly poured, botanical spirits stand alone on the drinks shelf. Whilst they don’t make the easy cut as a gin, nor vodka, one thing is for sure, you’ve never tasted anything quite like them. Here at Highland Boundary, we ethically forage locally grown botanicals to combine with the purest form of alcohol to capture the natural flavours of the Scottish wilderness.

Why choose botanical spirits?
Firstly, by choosing to drink botanical spirits you open up your senses to a whole new whirlwind of tasty flavours that only nature can provide. Explore something different and open your taste-buds to whole new, natural botanic flavours.
By choosing botanical spirits you are also supporting ethical distillers like us on our journey to spread the word on sustainable methods for producing botanical alcoholic drinks. If you have ever bumped into us at local farmer's markets such as Bowhouse, Fife and Inverness Farmers Market.
We value the nature that supports our products so in return we make a conscious effort to protect, improve and grow these places. And as mentioned before, we hand-pick all of our ingredients whilst out on a country stroll, basket in hand with no need for machinery. Our farm based in Alyth, Perthshire, is also an on-going project of rewilding local species and habitats which has been in the works for over a decade now.
How to serve botanical spirits & liqueurs
Once the bottle is in your hand you have total creative freedom on how to enjoy your botanical spirit!
We aim for smooth so you can serve as a straight nip of spirit or liqueur with ice, and maybe a dash of a soft mixer if you don’t like it quite so strong. Really explore and indulge yourselves in the unique flavours as you like. Or, how about bringing out your inner bartender and mix your botanical spirit with natural fruit juices and cordials to create absolutely scrumptious botanical cocktails. They’re easy to make and impress your friends with. Read more here about how to serve botanical spirits and liqueurs try out Highland Boundary's cocktail recipe list at home.
