  • I found your details on a site of the best bloggers and hoped you would be prepared to share the following appeal

    We were notified on Friday of the possible imminent collapse of part of the engine house wall in the distillery.

    Knowing how supportive you have been already we hoped you would help by driving as much traffic as possible to this crowd funding page.

    Thank you so much.

    All the best,


    We’re raising £25000 to carry out emergency stabilisation on the birthplace of Scotland’s whisky industry Kennetpans Distillery. Please donate to my JustGiving Crowdfunding Page and help make it happen:
