The Dealer hears that Cork-based dairy farmer, turned property developer, turned whiskey-maker Michael Scully has received planning permission for a new whiskey warehouse on a farm in west Cork.

The distillery itself is located in a prominent position along the waterfront in Clonakilty while the new warehouses, capable of housing over 17,000 barrels of whiskey, will be located a few miles to the north of the town on a leased property.
