IC Filling Systems are pleased to have completed another installation in Scotland, with commissioning of equipment for Scottish Borders Brewery, also known as Born in the Borders.
The Born in the Borders Brewery is a multi-award winning microbrewery creating real ale using barley grown in the neighbouring fields.
Founded in 2011, and originally known as the Scottish Borders Brewery, the brewery distributes in cask and bottle across the UK, and its strong “plough to pint” ethos has seen it grow rapidly.
The 'Born in The Borders' tourist centre has local walks, a restaurant, shop and now also the brew-pub. IC Filling Systems supplied a sterile filtration system, and complete 551 automatic rinser-filler-capper, along with an inline labelling machine and conveyor system. The Born in the Borders Brewery is Scotland’s only "plough-to-pint microbrewery", growing the barley, then brewing (and now bottling) the beer.
Beers include Foxy Blonde, Game Bird, Holy Cow, Dark Horse, Flower of Scotland and Gold Dust, and the brewery also runs a unique project called Wild Harvest, which uses locally foraged ingredients to flavour a separate range of beers.
