I'll drink to this

There are plans to construct the world's most northerly distillery in Shetland.
The distillery plans annual production of 40,000 cases of premium single malt, in peated and unpeated versions, and a variety of wood finishes.
Good news indeed. I have been to Shetland only once and greatly enjoyed the visit. I must say, though, that the Shetland weather makes a wee dram a necessity rather than an optional extra.
