Scotland to get new distillery

27 May, 2010

Approval has been given for the building of a new £5 million distillery in Falkirk.

The distillery project is the work of the local Stewart family which is operating under the name of the Falkirk Distillery Company.

It will be the first distillery in the town since Rosebank closed in 1993, though plans to use the Rosebank name are likely to be thwarted by Diageo which owns the trademark.

Bottles of original Rosebank are now collectors’ items.

The Stewart family first outlined plans for the distillery two years ago but the planning process was delayed by objections that the development was close to the Antonine Well, which has World Heritage Site status.
