About Ardnahoe Distillery:
Ardnahoe Distillery is the long-held dream of the Laing family of Hunter Laing and Co. and is scheduled to open in Spring, 2018. Located on the North East coast of Islay between Caol Ila and Bunnahabhain, the distillery will have spectacular views up the sound towards Mull and across to Jura.
The Laing family have worked in the Scottish Whisky industry for more than three generations and over the years have acquired a vast stock of some of the most sought after whiskies in Scotland.
Ardnahoe is the island’s ninth operational distillery and will distil a classic peated style of Islay malt using water from the depths of Loch Ardnahoe itself. The distillery will use wooden washbacks, traditional worm-tub condensers and Scottish-made copper stills which will have the longest lyne arms on Islay. This, along with the knowledge of one of the whisky industry’s most experienced Master Distillers, Jim McEwan, will enable Ardnahoe to strive to create one of the most enchanting spirits to come out of the renowned Whisky Isle.
