Specialist soft drinks maker Rapscallion Soda is collaborating with Scotland’s first alcohol-free spirit – Feragaia – to give a “fresh perspective on the way we drink”. The tie-up will also emphasise the brands’ Scottish provenance and sustainability.

The move ties in with the Sober October initiative, and from Monday the brands will be donating £1 per online sale towards MacMillan Cancer Support during October.

Gregor Leckie, founder of Rapscallion Soda, said: “It’s always been our mission to get people across the UK drinking better-tasting drinks and ones that are good for you too. I hope that our collaboration with Feragaia encourages the public to try something exciting this October.”

Jamie Wild, co-founder of Feragaia, added: “Rapscallion Soda is an industry trailblazer and we’ve forged a friendship through provenance and a shared vision of how things should be made.

“We’re excited to collaborate to encourage people to try something new and also help support such a fantastic charity initiative by MacMillan Cancer Support.”

Among the collaborative products is Dreich and Stormy, which teams Feragaia, sweet honey, a splash of lime juice and Rapscallion Ginga Ninja, finished with a vibrant red chilli. Another concoction features Feragaia over ice, topped off with Rapscallion Dry Lime Soda and a lime twist.

Sober October is a campaign that encourages people to go sober for the month of October to help raise funds for cancer charity, MacMillan Cancer Support.
