Ailsa Bay

The distillery

Addess: 
Ailsa Bay Distillery
Grangestone Industrial Estate 
Girvan Ayrshire KA26 9PT
United Kingdom
44 1465 713091

Owner: William Grant & Sons

Creation: 2007

Ailsa Bay was built on Ladyburn's former site at the site of the Girvan Grain Distillery, owned by William Grant & Sons, who owns Glenfiddich and The Balvenie.

Increasing pressure on the latter two (who have a hard time supporting production) prompted William Grant & Sons to build the new distillery in 2007.
A first bottling was marketed in 2016. It is a whiskey without age and heavily peated.
