A new whisky distillery is set to be built on the western Scottish island of Islay.

As reported by industry blog Whisky Advocate late last week, the facility, located near the town of Bowmore, will be called Gartbreck and will be smaller than the eight distilleries already on the island.

While details of the ownership of the distillery have not been disclosed, just-drinks understands that the site should be operational by early-2015.

The stillhouse will overlook Loch Indaal from a spot on Gartbreck Farm called Saltan Point.

Further developments are expected to be released before the end of this year.

The most recent distillery to start production on Islay is Kilchoman, which opened in 2005. Diageo, Moet Hennessy and Remy Cointreau all own distilleries on the island. Remy acquired Bruichladdich for US$90m last year.
