The Scotch whisky industry seems to be in something of a topsy-turvy state at the moment. Even as smaller (usually independently owned) boutique sites (such as those mentioned above) appear on the scene, larger corporate concerns are scaling back expansion plans.

Foremost among the latter is Diageo, the giant spirits enterprise, which has (temporarily according to company spokespersons) put its massive distillery development program on hold, purportedly owing to weakened product demand in the far eastern (read: China) and South American markets. This on-hold initiative included refurbishment/expansion of some quality malt whisky sites (including Clynelish and Mortlach) as well as construction of a huge distillery in the Alness area. This latter project would have come hot on the heels of establishment of Diageo's extensive Roseisle Distillery, a state of the art facility.

So the picture at this time is very much a mixed one. Hopefully, the smaller distilleries now beginning to produce whisky (and those set to come on-line soon) will be able to weather the storm.
