Up & coming malt distilleries in Scotland

There's lots of good news concerning new Scottish distilleries, which are either already in operation or slated for opening in the near future...


ABHAINN DEARG: In Uig on the Isle of Lewis, this site represents the most westerly of Scotland's whisky distilleries.
AILSA BAY: Located at the Girvan grain distillery site (William Grant & Sons of Balvenie/Glenfiddich fame) in Ayrshire, this one's due to 'replace' Kininvie for production of malt whisky destined for the Grants' blends.
ANNANDALE: An old distillery located in Dumfries-shire in the Borders (Lowlands) region, which closed down way back in 1924, has been reopened as of 2007. It has now been renovated and made operational. The first cask of whisky is set to be filled in November of 2014.
ARBIKIE: A farm-style distillery overlooking Lunan Bay, just to the south of Montrose along the eastern coast of the Scottish Highlands.
ARDNAMURCHAN: Sited in the extreme west of the mainland not far from where the Kilchoan-to-Mull ferry departs (I've been there, and it certainly IS a remote area accessible only by the ferry and a one-lane, winding road), this small distillery will have its own maltings.
BALLINDALLOCH: Sited near the castle of the same name in central Speyside, this enterprise should hopefully be percolating away soon.
DAFTMILL: In the environs of Fife in the Lowlands, this 2-still distillery started up in 2005, and has already gained a reputation for its whisky.
EDEN MILL: Located at Guardbridge near St. Andrews, this distillery and craft brewery occupies the site of a former paper mill, and is scheduled for completion in 2015
GARTBRECK: This one's due to open southwest of Bowmore on the eastern side of Loch Indaal (Islay).
LONGSHIP: A third Orkney distillery (under this name), likely backed by Scandinavian interests, is presently in the preliminary planning stages (no precise location settled upon as yet).
PORT CHARLOTTE: Never mind that Bruichladdich has released medium-peated expressions of its whisky under this name (the name of a long-closed distillery, in fact). There actually will be a new Port Charlotte Distillery in a little while!
TARBERT (name of locality): Located on the Isle of Harris and scheduled for completion in early 2015, this distillery will produce malt whisky entitled The Hearach.
TORABHAIG: Talisker, on the Isle of Skye, will soon have competition. Located at Knock Bay (on the Sound of Sleat in the southern portion of the island), Torabhaig is set to open its doors in late 2016.
My whisky adventure began at the age of nine.
Good things DO take time!
