William Grant & Sons has officially opened its new Ailsa Bay malt distillery in Scotland, in the presence of heir to the throne Prince Charles.

The distillery, located adjacent to the company's Girvan grain whisky distillery operations in Ayrshire, was officially opened by the company's life president, Charles Grant Gordon, today (19 January).

It was later visited by His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales, Duke of Rothesay.

Ailsa Bay contains four wash and four spirit stills that produce a range of single malt whiskies for the company's Grant's range of blends.

"We have opened Scotland's newest distillery to increase capacity and supply of malt whisky for blending so we can meet the growing demand for Grant's around the world," said Gordon.

"By continuing our constant drive to develop and improve the quality of the Grant's blend, we hope that we can ensure the long-term future of the Girvan site and our 130 employees here."
