A 9th Distillery on Islay…..

It would appear that Islay is going to get a 9th Distillery !

According to a posting on The Whisky Advocate Blog it will be at Gartbreck Farm just outside Bowmore . To read the full report CLICK HERE

Within hours the internet was awash with it . Then Armin from The Islay Blog turned detective and found the company had been registered since May with Jean Donnay from the Glann ar Mor Distillery named as director ( See here ) . Then Joel from Caskstrength found that the web address gartbreck.com had been registered in July 2012 by Martine Rochard Donnay !

So the next question is will we get to double figures ? I think so , Bruichladdichs Port Charlotte Distillery still has planning permission……
