Family Bonds

Our family has strong local roots. We’ve been living, working, and creating business in Northumberland for four generations. We’re passionate about this county, our home, and with this new venture we want to work with our wider family in the community to create something that we can all be really proud of.

This project is a major cross-generational commitment from our family to the town, through the vision of Eileen and Alan Ferguson. Eileen’s father, John Redpath, and grandfather, ran the original haulage business that occupied the site to be redeveloped for our distillery. Eileen will be leading the team, supported by the whole family. Chris Ferguson will be directing the development of this project, having worked at some of Britain’s leading visitor experiences. This expertise will be invaluable to enable this development to put Wooler on the map.

Our collective ambition is to put something wonderful back into a region that has given us so much, and hopefully provide a solid foundation for Wooler’s prosperity for generations to come.
