Ice & Fire Distillery was born from our local area and a family of Highland Crofters wanting to try something different to sustain our crofting lives. We all have crofts but the crofting way of life has to be supplemented to survive. What better way to survive than to make spirits from the local water and botanicals which harks back to an era when crofters made illegal whisky on their crofts. We started off with a 5 litre alembic still, moving up to a 10 litre, a 20 litre, a 100 litre and 2 x 200 litre Hoga Stills We have had a great time developing recipes, getting friends and family to taste and give feedback and settled on our first two gin recipes “Caithness Gin” and Crofter’s Tears”, and now Caithness Raiders Rum.
Using the finest, freshest ingredients, Katrina Ashford of Rose Cottage Country Kitchen produces an award-winning range of preserves. The Nairn-based company sources the best local produce - some of which is organic - and uses traditional fruit-packed recipes for its range of jams, jellies, chutneys, marmalades, fruit cheeses and sauces. The products are made in a dedicated ‘jam kitchen’in small batches using open pans to give maximum taste and quality. As well as traditional favourites such as raspberry jam, tomato chutney and Seville orange marmalade, the range includes treats which have been developed exclusively by Katrina. Try crofters’ chutney, hedgerow jelly, or jingle berry jam. No artificial ingredients/GM or cheap fillers are used and all products, except those containing honey, are suitable for vegans. And speaking of honey, Katrina’s husband and son are in charge of the Rose Cottage bees, bringing a selection of pure Nairnshire honey for sale depending on the season. At the end of the year, the award-winning Christmas puddings and cakes are also available.

I am an Artist based in Inverness and known for my quirky functional art and pet portraits painted on wood and slate. I draw my inspiration from my beautiful surroundings, my love for animals and the materials I use, and never restrict myself to a certain style or technique. My creations primarily incorporate recycled materials, free fallen wood, I even use pebbles and rocks and other things that spark my interest. I have come to adore the unique quirks in nature, working to enhance its beauty instead of forcing my own concepts and trying to cover them up. As each piece is handmade everything I have available for sale is absolutely unique.

After an awful experience with shop bought green tea, I vowed never to touch it again; it was bitterly unpalatable. When visiting China I was handed a cup of the most beautiful nectar. Surely this delicious liquor was not green tea! This prompted me to explore the many amazing natural grown teas on offer, allowing them to unravel their incredible notes on my tastebuds. In 2016 I started my own business to bring a fantastic tea experience to others. Welcome to my world of amazing teas.

Michelle Hewitt is known for her detailed animal pastel drawings. Having always being interested in the natural world, she was introduced to Albrecht Dürer’s Young Hare study at an early age and has been drawing and painting animals ever since. The portraits by Rubens are also influential to her, the way the eyes seem to follow the viewer round the room. Eyes are the most important part of any painting to Michelle and she will complete them fully before working on the rest of the picture. Soft pastels are her favourite medium as they don’t require any drying time and offer a soft definition ideal for fur & feathers. Now living & working in the East Neuk of Fife, she is delighted that her work is grown in popularity and can now be found in private collections worldwide.
