Ardnahoe distillery på Islay

Hunter Laing forventer at have et nyt destilleri klar på Isaly med navnet Ardnahoe i sommeren 2018.

Og det er ikke hvem som helst de har fået til at stå for den fremtidige produktion, det er ingen ringere end Jim McEwan der stoppede hos Bruichladdich i 2015.

Destilleriet kommer til at ligge på nordøstkysten af Islay.

"While the distillery is not due to open until summer 2018, McEwan has been working closely with Hunter Laing’s managing director Stewart Laing and architect Iain Hepburn to design Ardnahoe’s layout and functionality.

Islay’s ninth distillery will feature wooden washbacks, copper pot stills and traditional worm tubs to create a number of different whiskies in the ‘classic Islay style’, and will ‘stay true to the island’s heritage’ with a heavily peated malt.


Jim McEwan udtaler: ‘The whisky we’re going to make at Ardnahoe will look back to move forward: we’ll be distilling slowly, by hand and without computers. We want to go back to maturing good whisky in good American Bourbon barrels for that traditional Islay flavour. I’ve done weird and wonderful casks in the past, but I’ll keep it simple and rely on the art of distillation and quality of oak for a unique, authentic taste.’
