The Happy Farmer was beside himself with glee. Christmas had arrived early, or so he thought, as he looked out of the farmhouse window to see a lorry roll up with a large, gleaming copper still sat comfortably and invitingly on the back. Reality soon set in, this was no illicit still, and Persabus is not going into whisky production just yet. No, the Still’s destination was clearly emblazoned on the other side of the trailer. Luckily the latest distillery on the island is, in the Happy Farmer’s words, just a short stagger from the farm.
It was good then to witness a bit of the island’s unique history as another Distillery prepares the way for more whisky production. The first run of spirit, according to local whisky whisperers, is in May 2018. We are very excited by our new neighbour’s venture…. Ardnahoe Distillery.
Until next time….
