Scran season 7: Hollywood success for two Scottish producers - Fetcha Chocolates and The Gin Bothy

The latest episode of our podcast, Scran is now live.

On this episode of Scran we're getting very excited about one of the international cultural events of the year.

The Oscars take place this weekend and in an amazing turn of events, two Scottish businesses have reason to celebrate. Fetcha Chocolates and The Gin Bothy will both see their products feature as part of the famous "Everyone Wins" gift bags which the nominees receive.

These bags have an approximate value of $125,000 and include such exclusive contents as luxury skincare and a lavish holiday in St Bart's.

On this episode of Scran I speak to Fiona MacArthur from her business Fetcha Chocolates in Campbelltown about this exciting development, as well as how she's got to where she is today. You'll hear about how she has gone all out to capitalise on this opportunity.

I also speak to Kim Cameron, owner of The Gin Bothy about the 'pinch me' moment of being asked to contribute one of her gins to the gift bag.

She also tells me the great story of how she went from jam making to gin making and how both businesses are reaping rewards.
