Work starts on new Edinburgh whisky distillery with top-floor bar


Entrepreneurs and whisky enthusiasts Ian Stirling and Patrick Fletcher will open a brand new 40-metre high £12m whisky distillery at The Port of Leith in Edinburgh in 2022.

Work is now underway on the structure, located next to the Royal Yacht Britannia and Ocean Terminal and it will feature a top floor whisky bar with Edinburgh Castle views and, say the guys, have a capacity to produce up to one million bottles of single malt a year.

The duo plan to create an ‘outstanding new style of Scotch using a modern approach’ and have already made Oloroso sherry and Lind & Lime Gin, both produced in a small stillhouse in Leith.
