Distillers & Spirit Producers

Scots' Cheer Ltd.


Scots’ Cheer Ltd., Crauchie, East Linton (near Edinburgh), East Lothian, Scotland, UK.


Scots’ Cheer, established in 1998 by husband and wife team Derry Campbell and Robin Ford, produce a range of real fruit liqueurs. Making their own liqueurs at home for personal consumption, they received positive feedback from family, friends and some representatives in the drinks industry. This spurred them on to give up their day jobs as Physical Education teachers at Portobello High School in Edinburgh, and pursue their liqueur production as a commercial business.

Having made their own Sloe Gin for some years, one particular year they encountered a poor harvest for sloeberries. Instead they turned to using blackberries, paired with Scotch Whisky, to make what they called Brammle (an old Scottish name for Brambles, more commonly known as Blackberry bushes). Armed with these recipes, the courageous step was taken to start production from their kitchen and in 1999 made around 3,000 bottles, using the facilities of a local bottling plant on Sundays. By 2002, with the inclusion of more product offerings, sales have reached 1,000 bottles per week. This has necessitated the move to commercial premises in Fenton Barns near Blairgowrie, including their own bottling facilities, and the 25 part time employees helping with bottling, labelling and packaging.
