Elixir Distillers bekräftar sina planer på att bygga ett nytt destilleri på ön Islay.

Elixir Distillers, tidigare Speciality Drinks, är förmodligen mest kända för sin Elements of Islay-series samt märket Port Askaig, samt för att deras ägare grundat The Whisky Exchange. Sent förra veckan offentliggjorde man sina planer på att bygga ett nytt destilleri på ön Islay.

Pressreleasen lyder:


 London, Thursday 26th April : At a public consultation held at Ramsay Hall in Port Ellen, Islay, yesterday evening, Sukhinder Singh, co-founder of Elixir Distillers, confirmed intentions for the company to build a new distillery on Islay.

Having secured a piece of land on the water’s edge near Port Ellen on Islay’s south coast, a planning application will soon be submitted following the public consultation. The current intention is to begin building early 2019 and begin distilling in 2020, as long as planning permission is granted.

Singh explains: “Some of the world’s most amazing drams come from Islay. Their unique style combined with the special character of the island meant there was never any question that we wouldn’t choose Islay to build our distillery. As soon as I saw the distillery site I fell in love with it. It’s on the holy grail of whisky roads, passing Laphroaig, Lagavulin and Ardbeg distilleries on the way to Kildalton Cross. Plus it’s in the town of Port Ellen, which as a collector of Port Ellen single malt, has a special meaning. It was just too good to resist.”
