Praise For Successful Renovation Project At Local Distillery

Local MSP Stewart Stevenson, Councillor Gary Coull and SNP Council Candidate Hazel Thain today [Friday] visited Knockdhu Distillery, base for production of the well respected anCnoc whisky.

The facility at Knock suffered badly from last year's snowfall and has now been lovingly brought back to a high standard with new roofs and rebuilt walls in traditional stone. The work has been undertaken by local builder Alasdair Rennie.

Speaking at Knock, Stewart Stevenson said;

"It was a delight to meet Distillery Manager, Gordon Bruce, and to see his commitment to old buildings coming back to life.

"Scotch whisky is a product that sells on tradition and quality and the investment made in the restoration will surely pay off in added lustre for the brand in the eyes of the discerning buyers of anCnoc."

Councillor Gary Coull added;

"I have been pleased to work with the distillery to ensure that it has been possible to use a traditional approach to the restoration of buildings while meeting modern standards. These buildings could stand for centuries and show that in the 21st century we had lost none of the traditional skills."

SNP Council Candidate Hazel Thain commented;

"It was impressive to see a happy team at Knockdhu. The distillery is an important part of the local economy and I wish it well."
