Bladnoch opens its doors for visitors

From July 25, Scotland's southernmost distillery will be offering tours again


Since the Australian businessman David Prior bought the Lowland Distillery Bladnoch in 2015, a lot has happened there. The distillery, which had previously been shut down for several years, was totally renovated and got a totally new distilling equipment. In 2017 production could finally start again. With six washbacks and two pot stills, Bladnoch Distillery today has a production capacity of 1,500,000 liters.

During the last years whisky lovers only could get an impression of the new distillery by regarding pictures and watching video clips, but soon they will have the chance to take a personal look: the new visitor center will be officially opened on 25 July 2019.

Bladnoch provides some information on opening hours and tours on its homepage:

  • The visitor center is opened from Monday to Sunday, 10.00 - 17.30
  • Distillery tours: 11 am and 2 pm, duration 1 hour
  • Tour tickets: £14 adults, £10 young adults 14-17 years; for adults, the tasting of the new make and two Bladnoch Whiskys is included. No admission under 14 years.
  • Since the group size is limited to a maximum of 10 people, booking in advance is recommended. This is offered online on the homepage.
