There’s a new award-winning spirit in town from today, from botanical spirits distiller Highland Boundary. Inspired and flavoured by the plants which grow wild around the distillery, the new Larch and Honeysuckle beverage was awarded double gold at the recent San Francisco World Spirits competition.
An intriguing alternative to gin or vodka, it joins the original Birch and Elderflower Wild Scottish Spirit in the Highland Boundary line up, all of which are produced on the founders’ Alyth farm.
The new offering combines a light, vanilla aroma with smooth, citrus taste; just the ticket served over ice with a slice of lemon, or soda.

The spirit’s launch coincides with both National Craft Distillery Day and International Biodiversity Day, two causes close to the heart of Highland Boundary founders Dr. Marian Bruce and Simon Montador, who have spent the past 12 years re-wilding Kirklandbank Farm, where the distillery is based.
“Never has our reconnection to nature seemed more important and we’re delighted to make our second release botanical spirit available to customers. It’s been over 4 years in development, we’ve created new techniques to make this spirit and feedback from customer trials has been excellent. We love our home in Perthshire and it’s a pleasure to create drinks that showcase the fantastic landscape we’re surrounded by.”
Highland Boundary Larch and Honeysuckle Spirit sells for £29 for a 500ml bottle, and is available at highlandboundary.com
