Outlander fans all know that actor Sam Heughan ( Jamie Fraser ) brought out his own whisky last year and it was a great success . But could there be a Lallybroch whisky on the horizon ? Alongside the sad news that Lallybroch ( Midhope Castle) is closed until next year came the news that plans have been unveiled that could see a new whisky distillery built at the site of the castle. Cheers !
