"We began the project with £50,000. The quotes for the stills, casks and building were horrendous, and to me seemed ludicrous. Eventually, i contacted some whisky enthusiast builders, removed the word distillery from other essential quotes and looked to mainland Europe for the equipment. We completed the basics under budget."
So that means it would cost anywhere between the above and 'shit loads'!
