a new £55 million grain distillery for the Scottish Borders, with a renewables focused approach
One of a small number of new distilleries proposed for our region, Jackson Distillers Limited (JDL) will build a new £55 million grain distillery in the Scottish Borders with the capacity to produce 20 million litres of pure alcohol (LPA) – all while striving for B Corp status.
JDL will be the only producer of single grain whisky spirit (GWS) in the region. This will be Scotland’s first grain whisky distillery to be built in over 12 years, and by far the most environmentally friendly, sourcing its ingredients within a tight circle.
Using the latest distilling technology and energy supplied from an adjacent anaerobic digestion gas plant, the project aims to take a renewables focused approach, with a plan to reach net zero carbon emissions and to become a net carbon absorber.
