Highland Boundary’s founder Marian Bruce is celebrating today, after winning the Innovator Award at Sunday night’s Scottish Women in Business Awards ceremony held in Glasgow. The Innovator Award is awarded for exemplary innovation in products, services or service delivery and reflects the efforts Marian has made founding Highland Boundary Distillery which uses only wild Scottish botanicals to create a new generation of Scottish spirits. The first release from the distillery, Birch and Elderflower has a unique but authentically Scottish flavour and is distilled and bottled at her farm distillery in Alyth, Perthshire.
Designed to recognise and celebrate Scottish women who have made a mark in their chosen field, and one of only seven winners on the night, Marian has said of the award, ‘I am delighted to be recognised by female business leaders in Scotland for the innovative, collaborative approach that we have at Highland Boundary.’ The award was presented by Angela Andrews, Director of Arrow Corporate Promotions who sponsored the award.
All of the botanicals used in the production of Highland Boundary are picked by hand, with an emphasis placed on seasonality and sustainability – all electricity used in the manufacture of the spirit comes from solar panels on the founders’ farm roof; whilst their offices are heated using biomass and the cooling water from the still comes directly from a natural spring and is recycled through their wildlife pond once it has cooled, continuing the water cycle.
The award is yet another accolade for Highland Boundary, who received a Gold Medal at the prestigious San Francisco World Spirits Competition last month.
Highland Boundary can be served neat, straight from the freezer, mixed of club soda, or used in a variety of cocktail recipes. It is priced at £29 per bottle, and is available for purchase at https://www.highlandboundary.com
