New Vatting Tanks Being Fitted

January 14, 2014

We have had a busy start to 2014 at the distillery with lots of new equipment being fitted.  As well as the new Conisby warehouse, which now holds all our maturing casks, we have installed two new vatting tanks in the warehouse opposite the still house.  The new vatting tanks will marry the Machir Bay, 100% Islay and other releases prior to bottling.  We have also made improvements to the malt handling which will make moving the barley from the malt floor to the kiln quicker and easier, no more poking barley down a hole with a broom handle!  A new corking machine and conveyors in the bottling hall have brought big smiles to the faces of the bottling team – bruised hands from pushing in 1000’s of corks a day will be a thing of the past!  We look forward to showing off these improvements to visitors when we fully reopen on February the 6th.
