Collaboration Key - Knowledge Exchange Awards

Multiparty Collaboration behind unique library of over 40 botanicals.

Collaboration is the foundation of innovation for us. 

It was great to be a part of the recognition shown to Heriot-Watt University’s International Centre for Brewing & Distilling, the Scottish Distillers Association and five distilleries who developed a unique library of over 40 botanicals grown in Scotland for distillers to create new gins, botanical spirits and liqueurs in order to support export activity.

The library is used to ensure Scottish gin meets import standards of countries like the USA. With 70% of the UK’s gin produced in Scotland, and sales expected to hit £1.5billion by 2020, the library is good news for producers who are eyeing the domestic and international markets.

We've greatly enjoyed working with the fantastic team at Heriot Watt and wouldn't be where we are without open, creative collaborations like this one.

If you're interested in sharing ideas and working with us then our doors and minds are always open - whatever that thing might be, if you think it's worth a conversation then please get in touch.
