New distillery gets go ahead

The green light has been given to a second distillery to be built at the south end of the island.

The Isle of Arran Distillers Ltd has received planning permission to build the distillery, visitor centre and six bonded warehouses at Kilmory. Work could now start on construction of the first three warehouses by October and the distillery by February next year.

The news comes just days after the company posted impressive annual results, with 2015 showing a 25 per cent growth in net profit. Driven by a 16 per cent growth in brand sales and increased visitor numbers at the exisitng Lochranza distillery, the results, which are being filed with Companies House, are the latest in a succession of healthy profits reported over the last six years with a 130 per cent increase since 2010.
