Enzo Durante, managing director of Porrelli ;  

“I brought Ross & Brown on board at the start of 2015.

In the last year they have developed my existing retail accounts through their expert analysis and advice, and they have also found new sales channels for Porrelli through their extensive network of industry contacts.

We have developed an excellent working partnership which benefits my brand across all channels and has delivered a significant return on investment.”

 

Pickerings Gin.

This multi-award winning, marvellously mixed gin is hand crafted at Summerhall Distillery – the first exclusive gin distillery to be established in Edinburgh for over 150 years.

Based on an original Bombay recipe, kept secret since 1947, Pickering’s comes in three delicious bottlings as well as the occasional special edition. All of them spectacularly smooth and beautifully balanced. Perfect for all social animals.

The Finnieston Distillery co.

Don’t just go against the grain go against the Malt!

When setting out to create our first Whisky the team shared a common goal that we blend something that can be enjoyed as you want to and not how you’re told. Often with Whisky the younger generation can be put off by simply not knowing where to begin their journey and opt for something that they have been told is the best or is the one their dad or grandad favours.
We knew that in the drink industry as a whole variety and versatility are becoming ever increasing factors in selection so we wanted to create something that could celebrate this with, arguably, Scotland’s finest export.
With Dram Òrach (which translated from Gaelic means The Golden Dram) predominantly being from the Speyside region, we feel we have a sweet, light and balanced offering that would work well in a range of products from fine foods to cocktails. We worked to produce an expression with exactly the tasting notes that would ensure we had the foundations to open up our Whisky to a wider audience as well as support future expansion of our product range; this coming in the form of our RTD Scotch Whisky Cocktail aptly titled, Òrach.

Cairn o'mohr.

Scottish Fruit Wine & Cider

Set in amongst the rich fields and the hedge fringed country roads of the Carse of Gowrie, Perthshire there’s this strange Scottish winery.

Since 1987 the Cairn o' Mohr Winery has been brewing up juicy-fruity, berry loaded, blossom scented, leafy layered, award winning country wines, using the berries for which this area is famous, wild flowers, roots and leaves.

Fruit wines, sparkling wines, ciders, fruit punches, apples and bourtree juices and other stuffage using near anything that grows.

Owners Ron and Judith Gillies believe in sourcing locally and living in an area flush with wild ingredients and some of the best fruit in the world. It’s all there for the picking.

Annandale Distillery.

It’s been a while (90 years in fact) but the re-awakening of Annandale Distillery means that fine Single Malt Scotch whisky now flows again from Dumfries and Galloway.

Strathleven Distillery.

“Distilled in Scotland” – one of the most important assurances of quality in a wide world of Premium Spirits.

Close to Loch Lomond, at Strathleven , we start distillation after most of our competitors have finished, believing that they have already achieved their highest standard of spirit. In our bespoke Copper still, designed to our own unique specification, we Craft our spirits to higher strengths and finer cuts than have ever been achieved using traditional methods.
