The re-opening of neighbour Brora was the biggest whisky news of 2017. Far less people know that the current Clynelish distillery was actually closed for a large part of the same year, and re-opened halfway through 2017.

"I walked out of Waterford Distillery with a big, fat smile on my face. Something special is happening in this giant, ugly factory in a small Irish city. Fascinating stuff. I can't wait to see how it all works out in the end."
The Saladin maltings at Benrinnes Distillery made for an eerie experience. The kind of stuff you might see in horror movies, where you expect some slasher type to jump out of a dark corner. It was like a Doomsday decor.
