UK: Rainfall brings Burn Stewart Distillers plant back online
Burn Stewart owns the Tobermory Distillery
A Burn Stewart Distillers' plant that halted production because of water shortages is due to resume service.
The Tobermory Distillery on Mull was shut down on Thursday after low levels in the plant's water supply sparked quality concerns. The shortage was caused by a drought on Mull, which has received some of the lowest rainfall levels in the UK over the past month.
However, a Burn Stewart spokesperson confirmed to just-drinks today (16 April) the distillery, which makes Tobermory and Ledaig single malts, is back online. “It has been raining for the past few days and now water levels are back to normal,” the spokesperson said.
Production is due to restart tonight, the spokesperson added.
