Thanks to you Speyburn Single Malt Scotch Whisky has enjoyed a sustained growth in markets around the world for many years and is now one of the most recognised Speyside malts. And as the community of Speyburn fans grows and the demand keeps climbing from year to year, we have to make sure we are laying down enough stock to quench your thirst for classic Scotch single malt in ten, fifteen, or even twenty five years' time. It's our responsibility today to make enough great whisky for tomorrow.
That's why we are delighted to announce plans for a Distillery expansion on our historic site in Rothes. We are investing £4 million to increase the production capacity at Speyburn Distillery from 1.8 million litres to over 4 million litres of alcohol per year. This will ensure that sufficient amount of stock will be laid down every week to ensure continued supply and growth for the brand for many years to come.
The traditional production process we employ to make our award-winning malt will of course remain the same. But we are going to use more up-to-date design and equipment, expertly manufactured by our friends at Forsyths Coppersmiths and fabricators just around the corner from the Distillery, to achieve greater efficiency. We predict that the energy savings may be as high as 20% with the new set-up in operation and that means a smaller carbon footprint, something which has been very high on our agenda during the planning process.
We aim to start production in the extension by the end of 2014. We will no doubt keep you posted on the progress but for now help us celebrate this exciting new chapter in the history of our distillery by raising a dram to the continued success of Speyburn.
Please enjoy responsibly.
