BELIEVE in Scotland has launched its own Scotch whisky and whisky glasses, with all profits going to fund its grassroots independence campaigning.

The whisky, launched in partnership with Art of the Dram, was originally part of the organisation's 2023 crowdfunder reward tiers.

The first 60 numbered bottles were given at an exclusive whisky tasting event held in Glasgow to those who donated £300 to the crowdfunder – which raised £88,015.

Each donor also received a Believe in Scotland branded Glencairn whisky glass, which is also now available to purchase.

The idea to officially launch the whisky arose during the campaign’s crowdfunder, but organisers said they “may have underestimated the demand” with Yessers telling them they intend to buy one to drink – and one to open on Scotland’s independence day.

Gordon MacIntyre-Kemp, the campaign’s founder, commented: “Campaigns cost money and so we are always looking for innovative and fun ways to raise funds for our campaigning activities and also to reward donors for their support.

“There was so much interest in the product from the crowdfunder that we have decided to launch Believe in Scotland Scotch whisky to the public. This was produced in partnership with Art of the Dram who will handle sales for us via their website and the unique design for the box and bottle was produced from our in-house designer, Stewart Bremner.

“We may have underestimated the demand as most people are saying they will buy two: one to drink and one to keep for independence day.

“We have also been asked about a potential BiS gin so that product is firmly on the drawing board.”

The whisky is a blend of five pure malts from Speyside and Highland malt whiskies for “a well-balanced and smooth finish”.

The description added: “With sweet notes of citrus, toffee, a hint of sherry and warm spices, this delicious dram is versatile to mix or simply be enjoyed on its own.”

Designer Bremner also designed the organisation’s Scotland the Brief publications.

The whisky will retail at £55 a bottle, including post and packaging and is available to purchase here. The Glencairn glass is available to buy here.

Believe in Scotland is a network of 142 local and national grassroots campaign groups, making it the leading non-party political independence campaigning body.
