A FUTURE DISTILLERY
The Future of Dark Sky Spirits
After subcontracting the bottling of our first blend, it became obvious that we need to be blending, bottling and labelling in town. But finding suitable premises close to Moffat proved challenging, given the specialist nature of business. To do this the right way, we would need a purpose-built facility. And, if we were committed to going to those lengths, why not go the next step and make spirit ourselves? Thus began our quest for the Moffat Distillery site.
After an arduous search - and a couple of false starts - we chose Kerr’s Field, adjacent to town on the Old Carlisle Road.
Our planning application to build the first legal distillery in Moffat was approved in January 2020.
Since then, we have been busy designing the building, process and experiences: doing our best to sort out all the details amid the pandemic. And because things are moving slowly, it has given us time to look closely at how this building will serve not only Scotch lovers, but also our community, including other businesses in Moffat.
