Get to know the fantastic team behind Highland Boundary!
Where would Highland Boundary be without our incredible team who are always on hand to support and get stuck in. Barry is exactly that! He's helps us throughout the entire process, from sourcing ingredients for distilling to bringing the final product to life. We'll let Barry tell you a wee bit more about himself and his life outside of work.
