Coulters captures the spirit of the fair with the borders distillery

Coulters, sponsor of the Fair’s much-loved Terrier Racing event, is entering into the spirit of the Scottish Game Fair with a stand on Osprey Row.

One of Scotland’s leading solicitor estate agents has partnered with the highly acclaimed Borders Distillery to serve up a showcase of Borders award-winning portfolio of spirits at stand O1 Osprey Row.

This is a great opportunity for visitors, traders and sponsors alike to meet Coulters’ team of legal and property experts who are on hand to answer questions relating to all property selling ,buying and conveyancing related matters whilst enjoying an introduction to some of the finest gin and whisky products you’ll find.

Coulters’ partner for the stand is The Borders Distillery, commissioned in March 2018 and the first Scotch Whisky distillery to be built in the Scottish Borders since 1837. A thriving distillery and innovative drinks business, which is housed in a landmark building in Hawick – a town famous for its manufacturing and cashmere- is dedicated to making great whisky and gin.

The Distillery founder will be on hand throughout the Fair sampling some of their top brands including Clan Fraser Blended Whisky Lower East Side, a smooth easy drinking Blended Malt Scotch Whisky of exceptional quality and the crème de la crème William Kerr’s Borders Gin, a botanical-infused delight crafted entirely from malted Borders barley. Gin is one of the most popular drinks on the market and this innovative brand is inspired by Scotland’s most renowned plant hunter, William Kerr, whose tireless work contributed 238 new plants to the UK.

A Hawick native (1779-1814), William became a gardener at the Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew in London. In 1804, he was sent to Asia where his work and exploits gained him his reputation as an accomplished plant collector. He sent 238 plants back to Britain, including the shrub named in his honour, the Kerria. William Kerr Gin by the Borders Distillery is made in Hawick, handcrafted in a special copper basket feature that suspends the blend of botanicals in the vapours of the original spirit. With subtle aromas and complex flavours of juniper berries, herbs, roots, flowers and spices, the result is a classic gin of depth and taste!

This is a stand that’s well worth a visit but if you’re looking for property advice or information prior to the Fair, why don’t you contact Coulters or the Borders Distillery
