Dunphail Distillery Receives Planning Permission

27th July 2021
The team behind London's Bimber Distillery gets the go ahead for Dunphail craft distillery and visitor centre just south of Forres in Speyside, Scotland.

Dunphail Distillery Concept

You may recall that back in March this year the team behind London's Bimber Distillery unveiled their plans for Dunphail Distillery, a new 200,000 LA capacity craft distillery in Speyside, Scotland, which they planned to construct through the conversion of an existing farm steading. I am pleased to say that the that plans to open the new Scottish whisky distillery and visitor centre in Dunphail, south of Forres have now been approved by Moray Council.

"We’re delighted that our planning application has been approved” said spokesperson Matt McKay. “We’re incredibly excited to be moving forward with our new distillery. We’ve worked very closely with Moray Council to ensure that Dunphail not only harmonises with the landscape, but that it also supports the wider community and the conservation of the local environment and its ecosystems. We are looking forward to turning our vision for Dunphail into a reality and crafting truly exceptional world-class single malt whiskies."

The ‘craft’ Scotch whisky distillery will combine tradition and modernity in both its appearance as well as its production processes. It will feature a floor malting facility and traditional kiln which will be utilised to process locally sourced barley. The fermentation times will be long, and distillation will be through direct-fired stills.

The breaking of ground expected to take place in early 2022 with distillation due to commence later that year. The company is now in the process of raising the investment required to fund the capital expenditure costs to construct the new distillery and to fund the initial operational costs whilst casks mature.

Additional details about the planned construction process, distillery specifications, and opportunities to play a part in Dunphail’s journey through memberships and cask purchases will announced over the coming months.

It will be at least a few years before we see some Dunphail single malt but meanwhile if you haven't yet tried Bimber single malt which is produced by the same folks behind Dunphail you will find it available from specialist online whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange and Master of Malt
