I must begin, first of all, that the same people are not exactly the same people who where behind the Kilchoman Project. For a moment I thought so, and maybe some others too?, but they where only investigating the chances of survival of the distillery, and getting the funds together for the next decade. Well they could build the Kilchoman distillery, but could not sustain for the next period, wich is a shame.
The Ladybank distillery seems to be completely different, especially when you read the names behind this project, such as Andrew Curie(ex Arran), and then the fact they try to get a fund raising, by becomming a lifetime member in this project.
But getting 1250 people together, who are paying 1850 GBP, that must be quite a lot of work. And then there's still the whisky school who eventually has to make its contribution too, to get it all done, and to sustain the little business, and many other factors who are involved with that.
It seems to be an interesting project, so if any of you happen to have by accident some 1850 GBP left, why not become a member. Anyway it's not my time to step in to, because I have these days that I just havn't got 1850 GBP in my wallet....sorry...
So will there be a slight chance that more of these projects wil emerge, and that some more distillerie who once where lost, will be brought back to life????
