Ardgowan Distillery secures provisional premises licence

The Ardgowan Distillery has secured a provisional premises licence at a hearing of the Inverclyde Licensing Board on 6 June 2019.

The Ardgowan Distillery and Estate will be a £multi-million project creating a brand-new distillery and wider tourist destination featuring a microbrewery, restaurant facilities, accommodation and wider grounds for outdoor pursuits such as hillwalking and mountain biking.

Martin McAdam, chief executive at Ardgowan Distillery, said:

“Securing the licence is the next key step in our journey and we are grateful to Stephen and the team at TLT for their assistance. We are now focused on developing the site which we are confident will become a leading attraction in the west of Scotland.”

The licence was secured for the distillery by TLT solicitors. Stephen McGowan, head of licensing (Scotland) at TLT, said:

“It was a real pleasure to represent such a fantastic project. It really was an exceptional application and a joy to work with the team at Ardgowan Distillery. The Inverclyde Licensing Board was extremely supportive of the proposal and showed genuine interest in this.”
