Fife distiller, Tayport Distillery, is “toasting” a deal to supply Co-op which will see its Raspberry Liqueur available at up to 50 stores in Scotland.

Based in Tayport, the family-owned and operated distillery, created its first bottles of spirit in 2018, and now produces a range of drinks using its own malted barley based spirit. Locally sourced fruit and botanicals are then added to give all their products a distinctive Scottish edge.

The distillery will see its 1992 Raspberry Liqueur available at Co-op stores in time for Scottish Food & Drink Fortnight.

Kecia McDougall, Director and Distiller: 

“We are absolutely delighted to be working with Co-op. The listing comes at an important time to support our business – the additional awareness, reach and availability from being stocked in our local Co-op and in communities across the country is a huge boost.”

Kevin Buchan, Co-op Local Sourcing Buying Manager, Scotland, said:

“We are delighted to be working closely with local distillers, Co-op is all about connecting communities, making a difference and creating value locally, and our work to celebrate and support local suppliers and, to showcase and promote great Scottish food and drink, is a cornerstone of this approach.”
