About The Borders Distillery
The Borders Distillery opened in Hawick in 2018 – the first whisky distillery in the Borders region since 1837. Situated on the banks of the River Teviot in an award-winning conversion of the former Victorian electrical works, the distillery offers an excellent tour and tasting.
Take the fascinating tour and learn how the distillery makes Single Malt Scotch Whisky, William Kerr’s Borders Gin, and Puffing Billy Steam Vodka. You’ll be guided round by the people who make the spirit, and in a refreshing break from the norm for a distillery, photography and video are allowed throughout the tour. Your visit finishes with a tasting in the distillery bar. There is also an excellent shop with a selected range of spirits, local produce, and gifts.
