Lockdown, for our Brand Ambassadors has involved them individually 'Taking-Over' the A Team Instagram, every Thursday night at 6pm. Together our Brand Ambassadors are referred to as 'the A team' and from across the country, each of them will tune in from home to showcase a different Arbikie product.
Thus forming 'The A Team Takeover'
The pilot episode was from our wonderful Edinburgh Brand Ambassador, Kylie. Week one of our white spirits, gave us a taste and insight into Tattie Bogle. Kylie educated us on all things 'potato vodka' and provided us with some cocktail inspiration.
The start up inspiration for Arbikie Distillery was to find a sustainable use for 'wonky veg' that supermarkets would reject, putting our 'wonky potatoes' at the heart and soul of our distillery.
To finish of The A Team Takeover, Kylie put a special Arbikie twist on a classic White Russian cocktail.
Tatties 'n' Milk
Up next was one of our Dundee Brand Ambassadors Chris Reeves providing us with more Thursday night entertainment with AK's Gin . We had our drinks poured early for Chris to graced us with a Tiki themed episode and super creative ways to utilise the natural flavours in AK's Gin. Chris also shared with us the sentimental value behind this gin. Like all Arbikie products the name plays a part, it is all significant and even more so with this bottle. It is a homage to the late Alexander Kirkwood Stirling, the father of Arbikie founders, who worked on the farm for over 60 years passing on his skill and knowledge.
We got the full package with Chris; a fun cocktail, tasting notes and all the history.
