Diageo shows taste of things to come

Milestone passed with Brora Distillery planning permission The famous Brora Distillery has taken another step towards reopening after Highland planners granted permission to the landmark project. Painstaking work will now begin to restore the original buildings, which date back almost two centuries to 1819, bringing the site back to life as a working distillery. Under the plans, the distillerys historic stillhouse will be entirely dismantled before being meticulously rebuilt stone-by-stone so that it retains its original character but is structurally capable of once more producing the finest quality spirit. Stewart Bowman, Brora Distillery Project Implementation Manager, said: This is a key milestone in our journey to bring Brora Distillery back into production. Everyone involved is raring to get going with the work to restore the beautiful distillery buildings so they can once more produce the spirit that Brora is famous for.
