Annandale Distillery. Established in 1836 and closing in 1918, this lowland distillery reopened it's doors and sprung back into action in 2014 producing scotch whisky after a 90 year break. Traditional chimney stack and pagoda roof, tie in the history of the buildings with the impressive, modern redevelopment. The Washbacks and Stills share an open plan room. Clean, crisp and bright room is in contrast to many darker, dustier and settled distillery counterparts. The Mash Tun. Where the grain and the water meet and mingle. This is where heating this mixture produces the sugars from the broken down barley grain's starch. From 'porridge' to a hot sugary liquid called Wort, this is drained and collected where it then moves to the wash-backs for fermentation. #scotch #whisky #lowland #whiskey #lostdistillery #founddistillery #annandale #distillerytour RT @isleofislay: The Islay Daily Newspaper is out! https://t.co/aStAyOvbdW #islay #news Stories via @ScotsMagazine @WhiskyBarrel @Netweather

Yoichi (Japan)

Yoichi Distillery is situated close to the Sea of Japan in the town of Yoich and on the Shakotan Peninsular which is on the west side of Hokkaido Island. Yoichi Distillery is the most northerly distillery in Japan and also the second oldest distillery in Japan having been founded in 1934 by Masataka Taketsuru who had studied whisky production in Scotland. Distilling commenced in 1936, blended whisky was released in 1940 and then Yoichi single malt whisky in 1984. Yoichi is equipped with six stills which are heated directly by a coal fire. Worm tubs are used to cool the spirit and the distillery has its own cooperage. A small number of Japanese Oak casks are filled for maturation. Yoichi Distillery visitor centre welcomes visitors and offers distillery tours.
