Feragaia has completed construction of its new distillery, making it the first non-alcoholic distillery in operation in Scotland.
The facility will help increase production efficiency and capacity, meeting the demand required for the growing low-alcohol and non-alcohol market.
The soft drink was previously distilled at a private distillery in southern Scotland, but due to its continued growth, the need for a dedicated facility was required.
Feragaia co-founder Bill Garnock says: “It is an honor to open the first working non-alcoholic distillery in Scotland, just 24 kilometers from my family farm in the East Neuk. This is a bold step in our Feragaia journey, and will allow us to continue to uphold our core values of provenance and process. The distillery will further enhance transparency throughout the supply chain, creating an alcohol-free spirit that works in partnership with the wild forces of nature that inspire us. Authenticity guides every batch of Feragaia and this development reflects our passion and desire to be rooted in originality.
“Fife has played a key role in the history of spirits innovation and remains a leading player in the world of premium spirits production. Opening our own Feragaia Distillery here is an exciting new chapter for Feragaia and for Fife!
Founded in 2019, Feragaia recently achieved B Corp status for its environmental policies, with the new distillery improving the measurement of the manufacturing process without chemicals or waste. This includes local sourcing and production, with more business opportunities coming to the Fife area from the new distillery.
In November 2021, they also announced the £1.5m investment from conservationist Andres Povls.
