George Blues

George ventured into the world of craft cider after spending 14 years working in the Scotch whisky industry.

His move into the cider business has been a steep learning curve, but its also great fun. George is out and about most weekends of the year sharing our great-tasting, traditionally-made cider with visitors to farmers' markets, farm shops, events and food festivals. And, of course, he has the arduous task of being in charge of our quality control sampling too! When he's not doing cider work, his other loves are cycling and hill walking.


Ozzy is our wonderful cocker spaniel and the inspiration for our “Scruffy Dog Cider” brand. He’s been involved in our venture into cider-making from the start and his love of life and the wonderful Scottish countryside continues to inspire us. He's always up for an adventure and has bagged numerous Munros with George - from Ben Nevis to Schiehallion and Ben Lawers.
