Bladnoch’s David Prior on His First 5 Years

Scotland’s Bladnoch Distillery has more than 200 years of history, but had fallen into administration and was on the verge of being lost when Australian entrepreneur David Prior decided to buy the Wigtown landmark in 2015. Since then, he’s invested millions of pounds to rebuild the distillery and its visitors center, and his team led by Nick Savage is now laying down stocks of whisky for the future while using the casks acquired with the distillery to create today’s Bladnoch single malts.

WhiskyCast’s Mark Gillespie interviewed David Prior on November 23, 2020 via webcam from his home base in Melbourne, Australia.
