Badvo at The Gin Den…and its a bit special.
Here’s what the press had to say about the founder.
A young entrepreneur who started a gin distillery to help underpin the future of her family’s farm has won top billing in a new national awards scheme.
Helen Stewart from Badvo Distillery near Pitlochry has been chosen to be the winner of the first NFU Mutual and Scotland Food & Drink Inspirational Young Person Award.
The organisers noted that Ms Badvo had taken the initiative to establish the micro distillery at the age of 18 after deciding she needed to develop a new revenue stream for the farm.
With no start up funding to rely on, Ms Stewart worked seven days a week to help get the business started in buildings that had been lying empty.
She takes care of everything from distilling to marketing, and forages for all the botanicals needed for the gin on the farm.
Well done Helen, this highlights the opportunities available in the Gin Industry to create stunning craft Gins and grow the market.
