Whisky Boosted by New Distillery Plan

Published Date: 25 June 2009

THE Scottish whisky industry is set for a boost with the announcement that proposals are being drawn up for the development of a new distillery on a country estate a few miles from St Andrews.
Fife has a long association with Scotch whisky – the earliest surviving record relating to scotch, dating from 1494, makes reference to Lindores Abbey, near Newburgh, while it is also synonymous with great whisky names, such as John Haig.

Behind the new venture is the Kingsbarns Company of Distillers Ltd – Abertay University graduate Doug Clement, 32, and Tasmanian entrepreneur and tourism consultant Greg Ramsay, 32, who first met while caddying at the Kingsbarns golf links.

They have engaged conservation architectural firm Simpson and Brown to convert a disused farm steading on the Cambo Estate, at Kingbarns, into a working distillery and visitor centre.
