New distillery for Islay

Islay could get a new distillery, its ninth, if Celtic Whisky Company owner, Jean Donnay, who runs Glann ar Mor Distillery in Brittany, gets planning permission to demolish existing outbuildings at Gartbreak Farm, near Bowmore. They plan to put a distillery on the site which will be called Gartbreck. It will be Islay’s smallest distillery, and will open in Spring 2015 on the shores of Loch Indaal. The plan is to produce 55,000 litres-a-year of peaty malt.
