On dry land and getting a fresh lick of paint, our beautiful boat is currently sitting at Fairlie Quay.

Our 55 tonne*, wooden pilot cutter was hoisted out of the water… without a drop of whisky being spilt! It’s hard not to be impressed with the power and the skill involved when operating machinery at this size with so little room for error.

Were currently finalising plans to host voyages around the isles of the west coast of Scotland, where we’ll be providing a series of tours and tastings. If you would like to hear more and get involved, send us an email to
