This is interesting.

"The fee paid to landowners for foraging rights? One British pound and six cases of gin."

    Very interesting article. I am a bit of a Scotch whisky fan so I am very familiar with the history of the Bruichladdich distillery. I think it is amazing that they are producing a gin as well as their fine selection of whisky. 6 cases of gin is a pretty good payment for allowing foraging on your land.

    This isn't the only distillery (or winery) that hires foragers. Glendalough Distillery (gin), Ireland. The Oakland Spirits Company (gin), California. Clear Creek Distillery (Eau de Vie of Douglas Fir), Oregon. Okanagan Distillery (absinthe), BC. Forty Creek Distillery (the Forager, botanical whiskey), Ontario. Wild Life Distillery (gin), Alberta. Pacific Rim Distillery (gin), BC. Urban Forage Winery and Cider House (assorted products), Minnesota. Kermode Wild Berry Wines (assorted wild fruit wines), BC. Just to name a few.

    Check out your region to find what local products are available. You might be surprised at what is brewing in your neighbourhood.
