Alasdair Day, who has unveiled plans to open a small distillery in Walkerburn, inherited his ancestor’s “cellar book” in 2009 and set about recreating some of the blends Richard Day had made in Coldstream in the early 1900s.

Seventy years after his great grandfather’s production ceased, Day produced his first batch of The Tweeddale Blend.

The Livingston-based businessman has produced another two since then, and now exports to Canada.
