Dumfries and Galloway distillery to be revitalised

People looking to buy a house in Scotland may be interested to know that whiskey production in Dumfries and Galloway is to be revived. The Annandale Distillery Company has accepted a Regional Selective Assistance (RSA) grant of £150,000 to revamp the distillery that has not been used in 90 years, enterprise minister Jim Mather announced. In a venture that is expected to yield significant economic growth, the revival of the distillery will create many jobs in the area, which may be good news for those looking for Scottish property. “This represents a significant private business investment in Scotland which, coupled with an indication of £350,000 from Historic Scotland and the offer of RSA from the Scottish government, will deliver real economic benefits and create new Scottish jobs,” said project director David Thompson. Elsewhere in Scotland, a new housing development has been launched in Fife by housebuilding firm George Wimpey.
