In Edinburgh, the bars are renowned for their atmosphere, tradition and interesting range of different spirits. Whilst Scotland is famous for whisky, Feragaia is pioneering its own traditional Scottish spirit in its own authentic way. Feragaia, a Scottish alcohol-free spirit, is redefining alcohol alternatives through its unique taste and refreshing qualities. There is no comparison when drinking Feragaia, this innovative drink creates a new realm of drinking by bringing together flavours from land, sea and spice and since its launch in 2019 this original spirit has been thriving in the captivating and authentic city of Edinburgh.
