September 25 2015distillery and visitor centre in Tarbert, Isle of Harris, has concluded with an official opening ceremony, allowing production to begin on the equivalent of 300,000 bottles a year of The Hearach single malt.
Designed by John Coleman Architects and built by R&R Construction the distillery is only the second to be built in the Outer Hebrides and includes its own maturation and bottling facilities.
Alex Paterson, chief executive of HIE, said: "This is a historic day for Harris, and I am delighted that joined up public-sector support from HIE, the Scottish Government and the Scottish Investment Bank, has enabled the backers of this new venture to bring their ambitious plans to fruition."
"The creation of 20 good quality jobs in Tarbert will have a hugely positive impact on the community, and it’s great that local people are at the heart of the opening ceremony for the new distillery.”
