    15 miles across the line between England and Scotland sits The Borders Distillery. Based in the town of Hawick, it's the first operational distillery in the Borders region since 1837, with distillation taking place from March 2018. As well as producing gin and vodka, the team have also distilled both malted barley and rye spirits, which have been married together to create this rather delicious Malt & Rye.

    Maturation of both spirit types took place in ex-Bourbon barrels, imparting creamy notes and a hint of soft citrus. The rye element, however, lifts the palate considerably with soft spice notes, turning the fruity element into something akin to rhubarb.

    This is a fruit-forward whisky with plenty of body - it sips nicely on it's own but will actually make a very interesting Old Fashioned - while not as sweet as using US whiskies, the balance of flavours is still something to be enjoyed!
