Yeah, we’re the best young business in the North-east!


Up against some pretty great food and drink businesses, team Esker are delighted to be named “Best Young Business” at the recent North-east Food and Drink Awards, held in the Mercure Ardoe House Hotel.

The Awards are a prestigious black tie affair and we have plenty of local food and drink talent in the area, which makes the win even more sweet. 

Founded in 2015, Esker was established to embrace innovation and produce spirits that deliver a real taste experience to the consumer, starting with our first award-winning gin. Since then we have opened a distillery on the Kincardine Castle Estate and added another two gins to our core range - Honey Spiced Gin and Esker Silverglas.

The judges of the award-category had this to say about us: “... they focused on a core range of products and demonstrated an unwavering commitment to quality and core values; and in this past year the company has laid down strong foundations, future-proofed the business to ensure current and future growth capacity is met…

Yes, we celebrated with a gin! 

We also came home with a finalist certificate for our latest addition to the Esker Spirits family, Esker Silverglas, who was a finalist in the “Best New Distilled Product” category.
