Bacardi-owned Bombay Sapphire has confirmed plans to open a new "multi-million dollar" distillery and visitor centre in the UK next year - its first standalone production site.

The site, in Laverstoke Mill in Hampshire, will be renovated from a derelict mill and is set to open in Autumn 2013. Planning permission was granted in February and building work is underway, the company said. Annual capacity at the site will be "up to 13.5m litres".

Bombay Sapphire is currently produced in Warrington at a site owned by G&J Greenall.

Earlier today (24 July), John Burke, Bombay Sapphire's global category director told just-drinks: "Bombay Sapphire has experienced great success in recent years... it is therefore the right time for the brand to establish its own production site to enable continued growth and success."

The company is not disclosing an exact spend on the project.

An extra 25 full-time jobs are expected to be created as a result of the new site.

The company is also aiming to attract around 100,000 visitors a year to the facility.
