Scottish Borders based Jackson Distillers are continuing their support of the prestigious Melrose Sevens Hall of Fame Dinner.

The Hall of Fame Dinner, taking place on 6th April 2023, is a celebration of the individuals who have championed rugby sevens and helped to build it into the world-class sport it is today.

Last year’s Hall of Fame Dinner saw five of the all-time greats of Rugby Sevens being inducted into the Hall of Fame. including Cecil Afrika and Jim Fleming MBE, and this year is set to be no different, with a further three new players invited to join.

Tournament Director, Phil Morris, commented: ’The Hall of Fame Dinner was a real boost to the occasion of the Melrose Sevens. We’re delighted that Jackson Distillers, who is now an integral part of this event, are continuing to support it, and we are very grateful for all their efforts ensuring the Dinner is once again a huge success.”

Founder and CEO of Jackson Distillers Ltd and Past President of Melrose RFC, Trevor Jackson, said:

“The Melrose Seven is an internationally celebrated event which brings huge economic benefit to the Scottish Borders, and we are delighted to be able to play a small part in supporting it.

“Jackson Distillers is passionate about seeing the Scottish Borders prosper, and through the development of our St Boswells Distillery at Charlesfield, we will be able to provide local jobs, support the Tweed Valley farming community and create a product we can all be proud of.”

The St Boswells Distillery, born out of Charlesfield Farm in the Scottish Borders, is the first and only Scottish Borders based producer of single-grain whisky spirit and grain-neutral spirit using 100% Scottish water and cereals of proven traceable origin.

Tickets for the dinner on Thursday 6th of April are now available to purchase here as tables of ten. Be quick, numbers are limited.

About The St Boswells Distillery

Jackson Distillers is building a 20 million litre per annum grain distillery at Charlesfield near St Boswells in the Scottish Borders, with its grain neutral spirit and single grain whisky spirit being used in  gin and whisky production

The Distillery will add value to locally-grown cereals using up-to-date distilling technology, adding to the circular economy, maximising recycling, reducing carbon emissions with zero waste to landfill. The cereals will be tracked from the seedbed to the still and beyond so that the customer can be confident of the provenance of the spirit

The development near St Boswells will also create 20 permanent high-value jobs and more than 200 jobs on-site through the construction phase, developing skills and training opportunities locally and generating significant economic value for the Scottish Borders. 

The cereals, once spent, will be passed to the adjacent anaerobic digestion plant, where they will be converted into methane, with the remaining material being used as soil conditioner for the crops. In addition, process water from an on-site bore-hole will be efficiently recycled to minimise the use of this important resource.
