About the Project
This is about the long-held dream of a Scottish family who has been in the Scotch whisky industry for 3 generations. After being blenders and bottlers for such a long time, the Laing family takes pride to become distillers. Ardnahoe Distillery is scheduled to open early in 2018 and will become Islay’s ninth operational distillery – only the second one in Islay to start up in over 100 years. With a production capacity of just 500,000 litres of alcohol per annum, Ardnahoe will distill a classic peated style of Islay malt, using the finest barley and water from the depths of Loch Ardnahoe itself. Employing wooden washbacks, Scottish-made stills, traditional worm-tub condensers and the knowledge of one of the whisky industry’s most experienced Master Distillers, Ardnahoe will strive to create one of the most enchanting spirits to come out of the renowned Whisky Isle.
Situated on Islay’s North-East coast, equidistant between Bunnahabhain and Caol Ila distilleries, the Ardnahoe site has breath-taking views of the Sound of Islay and Paps of Jura, with the islands of Colonsay and Mull just visible on the horizon; a truly inspirational setting.
