Highland Boundary's 2021 Round-Up

And just like that we’re into another new month of the new year! 2021 had its ups and downs, but overall we’re feeling positive about the year gone by, and excited for what’s to come in 2022.

 

Whilst we’re still in the early stages of 2021, let’s take a look back at the highlights of 2021 for Highland Boundary.

Lights, camera, action, we were on the BBC!

We kicked off January with an incredibly exciting feature on The Farmer’s Country Showdown which put a spotlight on Bowhouse traders. The film crew visited our farm and we shared our ethos for using ethically sourcing local ingredients and giving back to nature. We then hit up a day at the market and viewers could join us with a whole new behind the scenes perspective. A fantastic feature for Highland Boundary and a well-deserved spotlight on the hard work and creativity that our team consistently delivers.

Our wild seed mix giveaway 

In honour of World rewilding Day in March 2021, we decided that for every online order made with Highland Boundary we’d give each customer a free wild seed mix. The wildflower seeds included native flower species direct from our meadows for you plant and nourish in your own space, whether that’s a garden, allotment or flower box!

We joined Neighbourfoods’ Blairgowrie & Rattray market 

With the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, a lot of our favourite local markets had to temporarily close. So, Neighbourfood was a fantastic local enterprise to get involved in. They offer an online marketplace for independent food and drinks businesses to showcase their produce in accordance with their location. An innovative way for Scots to support their local businesses through the pandemic and discover more tasty options right on their doorstep.

Teaming up with 63 Tay Street on their new cocktail menu

Perth-based, award-winning restaurant 63 Tay Street kindly collaborated with us on a new cocktail menu featuring Highland Boundary botanical spirits and liqueurs. So, next time you’re one of their delicious dishes, be sure to ask for a Highland Boundary cocktail to wash it down. 


Tasting event and meet the maker at Geraldos of Largs


The Geraldos team invited us to host a taster event where we set up our cocktail bar in their shop and locals got the chance to have chat and sample some Highland Boundary favourites. The event went so well that Geraldos now stock our bottles and gift set. Huge thanks to the wonderful team!

Returning to our cherished farmer's markets


It really is the best feeling in the world to be out and about at local markets meeting you all and sharing our message…and a nip or two! We were incredibly grateful that 2021 allowed us to return to some of our favourite marketplaces and venture to new ones. We brought our taste of the Scottish wilderness to Northhop’s Festive Market, Newhailes House in East Lothian, Angus Farmer’s Market, Ghillies Larder in Braemar and more. 

Cocktails, cocktails and more cocktails

Throughout the year we continued to experiment with flavoursome new concoctions for you to make at home using your favourite Highland Boundary botanical spirits and liqueurs. Our Winter Warmers recipe collection offered a range of cosy cocktails for those damp and rainy days. Before sipping on refreshing tastes of a Wild Southside Fizz in the summer months!

We’d like to say a huge thank you to our customers for supporting our family-run business through challenging times. Each purchase means the world to us and drives us further to create the best quality Scottish spirits and liqueurs that we can. And on that note! A huge thank you to our wonderful Highland Boundary team for all of their efforts over the last year. We couldn’t do it without you all. 


Wishing everyone all the best for 2022!
