Scottish brewer the Isle of Arran Brewery has received planning permission to open a saké production site in Ayrshire.

The company, which claims the saké brewery will be Scotland's first, is now seeking building warrants so construction can begin. Arran Brewery bought the Dreghorn site last year, and plans to include a bottling facility as well as a beer hall and brewing school, it confirmed late last week. 

Saké is made from fermented rice and is produced in a brewing process similar to that of beer.

Almost all of the saké produced at Dreghorn will be sold in Japan, Arran Brewery said. The plant will use Japanese varieties of rice grown in the US, where Arran Brewery last year set up a US import company headed by the US Rice Producers Association's former finance director, Karen Miles.
