Bonnington Distillery



The result of a multi-million pound investment, The Bonnington Distillery was commisioned in 2019 and began production in March 2020, with an estimated 2200 casks per year. It is the first single malt distillery in Leith, Edinburgh, for nearly 100 years. The water used in the distillation process is locally sourced as it is drawn from an ancient aquifer located 147 metres below the distillery. This state-of-the-art distillery has unique twin-linked recievers, which means the distillers can create two different spirit types from the same distillation. There is a single 2.5-tonne mash tun and six 10,000 litre fermentation vessels inside which the wort is fermented for at least 48 hours. We also have 2 bespoke-made squat-neck stills which are made by Speyside copper works. Production batches of 2.2 tonnes of barley are milled, mashed, fermented and distilled through their 10,000 litre wash and 7,500 litre spirit stills made by Copperworks in Speyside, with an anticipated output of 500,000 litres of alchol per annum. Water is sourced by way of a bore hole for both producing and cooling.
