Scapa Distillery back to full-time production


Scapa Distillery back to full-time production
Scapa Distillery, which was last fully operational in 1993, and has been running on part-time production ever since, is now officially open for full-time production.
Douglas Cruickshank, production and spirit supply director for Chivas Brothers which owns the distillery, said: "The refurbishment is great news for Chivas Brothers which will benefit from the updated and improved plant.
"The distillery will now experience greatly enhanced production capabilities, with the potential to produce 1.2m litres per year. The distillery will focus predominantly on single malt requirements only."

That's wonderful news. I enjoy Scapa, and the 12 and 14 year are my preferred "keep a bottle on hand" malt. If you haven't tried it, you may be in for a pleasant surprise.
Excellent. Thanks for posting this. If not for the fact that today is my last day at this job, and I start a better one monday, this would have made my day.

I am also glad for all the reasons Dave say's. But also for the people of Orkney. Single Malt Scotch Whisky has brought prosperity to many remote places in Scotland. A relative prosperity which 30 years ago were unimaginable. Especially in places like Orkney which sadly loses many of its young people who leave for Glasgow and Edinburgh and further afield, looking for work. This is great news indeed for quite a few peple looking for work in the area. But as I said, I also applaud this for all the reasons Dave say's here above. I will drink a dram of Scapa tonight just to celebrate.
Peace,
