Scotland's first alcohol-free spirit, Feragaia, is set to launch an initiative to thank front line drivers during the coronavirus pandemic.

Whilst Scotland is on lockdown amidst the pressures and concern caused by the coronavirus pandemic, the country’s frontline drivers have been out in force keeping communities afloat.

From ambulance drivers and carers of the elderly delivering medication and essential food, to post men and women helping people stay connected, thousands are putting themselves at risk in order to help those in need.

Now start-up drinks brand Feragaia, Scotland’s first alcohol-free spirit, has launched an initiative to help thank these selfless Scottish heroes.

How can you get involved?

The people of Scotland are being asked to nominate the drivers they know that are making a difference in their communities to receive a Feragaia Care Package.

Whether it’s a neighbour driving an ambulance through the night or a family member providing hot meals for those in need during this time, you can nominate them via email at or direct message @Feragaia via Facebook or Instagram.

Simply state the name of your nominated driver, their address and a note describing what this individual does to support the community.

Nominated frontline drivers will receive a parcel including a 50cl bottle of Feragaia, along with bottles of Merchant’s Heart Ginger ale and Cushiedoos Tonic to enjoy before heading back out on the road again, alongside a personalised note.

Founder of Feragaia Jamie Wild said: “The people of Scotland have been so supportive to us during our first 6 months in business and so we now want to do what we can as a young company to repay that kindness at this unprecedented time.”

“Scotland’s communities are surviving thanks to the help of these amazing drivers, who are doing long hours in difficult circumstances with little time to relax and unwind between shifts. We hope that providing a little alcohol-free pick me up during these sacred times off the road will go some way to saying thank you for all of their amazing work.”
