David said 'It was the drinks industry that brought me up to Morayshire, working for one of the large distilling companies. I realised that my passion was in the craft industry and that I wanted to use my knowledge in this area for the business.
'My Goal was to create a range of drinks to encompass the Beach Lifestyle that everyone loves. From the first sip reminding you of dipping your toes in that rock pool through to savouring that last drop reminiscing about the sunsets. A relaxing drink for your to share with your Friends and Family- it's a shore thing.
'The beach is where I feel most at home. It is a place where worries drift away like the retreating tide. It relaxes me and I take enjoyment from using its gorgeous natural beauty whether it be kitesurfing, stand-up paddleboarding, beachcombing, family days at the beach, snorkling, swimming, BBQs' the list is endless.
'I have fond memories of the Moray Coast from Nairn all the way through to Cullen for many reasons.
