It has been over a year and half since we first announced that we had purchased the 200 year old mill in Castletown with the dream to renovate it into a Whisky Distillery and Visitor Centre.
Martin has since worked tirelessly developing the idea and plans to obtain planning permission. Many emails, phonecalls, surveys, sets of plans later and we are delighted to announce the planning permission has been granted!
There is clearly a long way to go yet, namely the small issue of a new roof and few windows, but it is fantastic to have the official go-ahead.
We are excited at the prospect of regenerating this old building and making it a Caithness landmark once again. The building has incredible history which we are keen to share along with it’s future as a whisky distillery. We’d love to hear from anyone with personal stories about the building – please do get in touch.
