Feragaia opens alcohol-free distillery in Scotland

Feragaia has completed the construction of its new distillery, making it the first working alcohol-free distillery in Scotland.

The facility will help to increase production efficiencies and capacities, meeting the required demand for the growing low and no alcoholic market.

The alcohol-free drink was previously distilled at a private distillery in South Scotland, however due to its ongoing growth, the need for a dedicated facility was required.

Feragaia’s Co-Founder, Bill Garnock says: “It is an honour to be opening the first working alcohol-free distillery in Scotland, just 15 miles from my family farm in the East Neuk. This is a bold step in our Feragaia journey, and will allow us to further deliver on our core values of provenance and process. The distillery will further strengthen 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 drive to be rooted in originality.

“Fife has played a key role in the history of spirit innovation, and remains a leading player in the world of premium spirit production. To open our own Feragaia distillery here, is an exciting next chapter for Feragaia, and for Fife!”

Founded in 2019 ,Feragaia recently achieved B Corp status for its environmental policies, with the new distillery said to be enhancing measurement of the chemical and waste-free manufacturing process. This includes local sourcing and production, with more business opportunities said to be coming to the Fife area as a result of the new distillery.

In November 2021, they also announced the £1.5m investment from conservationist Andres Povls.
