The Islay Boys have announced planning permission for a distillery and brewery building at Glenegedale in Laggan Bay on Islay. 

The application, approved by Argyll and Bute Council, allows the firm to advance with plans to build a distillery building to house a traditional, double-distillation Islay whisky. Baptised Laggan Bay Distillery, it will become the 12th whisky distillery on Islay. 

In addition, the firm will bolster their brewing credentials with a new building to house a brewkit for their Islay Ales.

The distillery and brewery site covers some 2 hectares, just opposite Islay’s airport in the centre of Islay, and is situated less than a mile from Islay’s longest beach, the Big Strand in Laggan Bay, from which the distillery takes its name. 

As part of the project, The Islay Boys have announced a partnership with family-owned Ian Macleod Distillers Ltd to help bring the new distillery to fruition. 

The Islay Boys have a long standing with Leonard Russell, chairman of Ian Macleod Distillers Ltd, who commented: „I have known and worked with the Islay Boys for a long time, and I’m delighted to be able to bring our long experience in creating quality Scotch Single Malts to the Laggan Bay Distillery project.“
