Welcoming our new Lochranza Distillery Manager

We'd like to introduce you to our brand new Distillery Manager at Lochranza Distillery - Stewart Bowman.

Stewart has taken over the reins from David Livingstone who left the company in September to return to Islay, having guided the Distillery & Visitor Centre through the many challenges posed by the Covid pandemic.

Stewart Bowman Lochranza Distillery Manager

Stewart was previously Site Operations Manager at Brora Distillery, as well as working in production at the Cragganmore Distillery. Prior to this he was Head Brewer at BrewDog for eight years. His impressive background in the industry is set to bring expertise and knowledge to the Lochranza Distillery Manager role within our busy production team.

Our Managing Director, Euan Mitchell said: “We’re all very excited to be welcoming Stewart to our wonderful company. His experience, passion and understanding of the industry will no doubt be a huge asset as we look to the future with Lochranza Distillery.

“This is a very exciting time for Isle of Arran Distillers, and we are so happy to be welcoming visitors back to our distilleries after what has been a challenging period for the industry. With Stewart on board we are thrilled to get going with what promises to be a very exciting time for the company.”

We are so looking forward to introducing Stewart to everyone.
