Burn Stewart Distiller has confirmed a change of distillery manager at Bunnahabhain on the Scottish island of Islay.

The company, which is owned by Trinidad-based CL Worldbrands, said earlier this week that Andrew Brown has moved up to the role. Having worked at Bunnahabhain's facility since 1988, Brown has been a warehouseman, mashman, an on-call operator and the stillhouse manager.

He replaces John MacLellan who is now working at the recently-opened Kilchoman Distillery on the island, a spokesperson for the whisky producer told just-drinks yesterday (14 June).

In October last year, Burn Stewart switched the production of its Scotch whisky portfolio to un-chillfiltered.
