Founded by Heather Nelson, the sitealso claims to be the only Scotch malt whisky distillery that has been established solely by a woman. Based on a disused runway of old naval air field HMS Owl, in Ross-shire, the Scottish Highlands, Toulvaddie will have an initial capacity to produce 30,000 litres of alcohol a year, and will feature stills said to be similar in size and shape to those used by illicit whisky makers many years ago. Nelson has spent a number of years designing and developing the distillery, which is in the process of being built. Production is slated to start this year.
