Ailsa Bay distillery
Malt distillery founded inside the Girvan grain distillery in 2007 and began production a mere 9 months later. Similar to Roseisle, Aisla Bay was built to supply the blends market> Though manipulation of peat levels, fermentation time (between 60-72 hours) and different stills types (2 wash stills and 2 spirit stills use stainless steel condensers in place of the traditional copper to produce a more ‘sulphury’ spirit) Ailsa Bay can produce four types of spirit.
