Aye, we’re known for our whiskies, it’s true. After all, the South has been producing fine Lowland malts since the early 19th century. However, we’ve got more tipples to offer our visitors than just Scotch. Discover our craft breweries and taprooms that are filled with award-winning IPAs and lagers, or tour our gin distilleries, where makers experiment with exciting new flavours inspired by our very own landscape. Slàinte Mhath!

Where to Visit?

Head to Hawick in the Borders or Newton Stewart in Dumfries and Galloway to sample both buttery smooth and peated single malt whiskies made locally in the town distilleries. Or explore the Pentlands for an invigorating walk, and a gin-infused rest-stop.
