Field-to-bottle visitor centre

ogilvy distillery

What’s said to be Scotland’s first potato vodka distillery is set to open the doors of its new visitor centre.

Ogilvy Vodka, which is based on the Hatton of Ogilvy farm in Angus, was launched by Graeme Jarron and wife Caroline in 2014 and is expected to welcome over 3000 visitors to the £150,000 centre in its first year.

Guided tours will run from Friday to Sunday, taking visitors around the vodka distillery and potato farm, which has been farmed by the Jarron family for over a century.

Tours will begin on a vintage tractor and trailer with a behind-the-scenes look at potato farming, before an immersive walkthrough of the distilling process and a guided tasting of the firm’s range of vodkas.

Graeme said: “Since Ogilvy Vodka was launched, we’ve dreamt of expanding our offering to take visitors behind-the-scenes and follow the journey of the humble spud from field-to-bottle.”
