David Farquhar, CEO of IGS, was invited last week to visit the Fettercairn Distillery in east Scotland to speak to a group of malt whisky writers who were paying a visit to the distillery.

Fettercairn was established in 1824 as one of the very first licensed distilleries in the country. Its success has relied on entrepreneurial spirit ever since the distillery first opened its doors, and it is now keen to explore what the future of the food and drink sector in Scotland might look like.

During the group discussion session, David was able to share details of the work we are doing at IGS to bring new and innovative technology to the agricultural sector to pioneer new modes of food production fit for the future.

Of course no trip to Fettercairn could be concluded without a tour of the nearly 200-year-old distillery, and a taste of the product itself. Many thanks to the team at Fettercairn Distillery for the chance to visit and engage in exciting discussions about the future of Scottish food and drink.
