The Distillery

Amongst the candidates for the title of "oldest Scotland's distillery", Littlemill claims to have the most ancient creation date, 1772. Rebuild in 1875, the distillery used the process of triple distillation until the mid 1930's. Mothballed from 1984 to 1989 the production has been resumed for about 5 years after modernisation of the installations. Closed again in 1994, it has been partially dismantled.
The remaining buildings are nearly in ruin.
However the plan to reopen this distillery and to transform it into a living museum exist.
Is there sill any chance the distillery will reopen one day? When one sees the current state of the building, one could doubt about this...
Some other projects also exist.The local authority gave outline permission in 1995 for a residential development, but plans were not legged before permission elapsed. The site was bought by developers Newstead Properties with the intention to build houses and luxury flats after having dismantled the kilns and mills.
On 4 september 2004, a (probably intentional) fire destroyed the remains of the oldest distillery in Scotland...

Whisky is an alcoholic drink. Let's prefer quality to quantity as the abuse of alcohol beverages can damage the health. Consuming alcoholic drinks during pregnancy, even in small quantities, can seriously affect the health of the child. Consumption of alcohol impairs your ability to drive a car or operate machinery, and may cause health problems.
