After working at the Bruichladdich Distillery for 15 years, legendary chief distiller Jim McEwan, who left in July 2015, returned to the industry to work at Ardnahoe, the newest distillery on Islay Island.
While work is underway for the distillery, which is planned to open in the summer of 2018, McEwan is the famous independent bottler Hunter Laing & Co., who founded the distillery. continues to work hard with.
McEwan, who we know especially with his experimental and crazy work in Bruichladdich, states that they will not turn to the more classic traditional Islay style whiskeys and realize an extraordinary production, and they plan to return to their essence. Ardnahoe will not have the computer systems we are used to today and everything will be done manually.
