Scotland’s first potato vodka distillery has opened the doors to its new £150K visitor centre on the outskirts of Dundee.

Expected to welcome over 3,000 visitors in its first year, the tours will start on a vintage tractor and trailer, which will showcase a behind-the-scenes look at potato farming. 

Visitors will take an immersive, step-by-step walkthrough of the distilling process and a guided tasting of the distillery’s single estate potato vodka.  

Independently owned and run by husband-and-wife team Graeme and Caroline Jarron, Ogilvy Vodka has been distilling at the couple’s farm since 2014.

Ogilvy Vodka uses thousands of kilos of misshaped potatoes that would otherwise have gone to waste in its production process.

It is distributed throughout the UK and is priced at £36 RRP per 70cl bottle.

Staffing crisis could open opportunities

The pandemic has thrown many challenges at bar owners over the past couple of years and the ones that survived the various lockdowns and restrictions deserve a pat on the back. However, while revenues are returning and bars are beginning to recruit once more, we’ve come up against a whole new set of problems, one of which is a global starring crisis.
