The Macallan, one of the core brands of Edrington, Scotland’s premier producer and distributor of global spirits brands, is to build a new £100m iconic distillery and visitor centre.
The new facility is scheduled to open to the public in Spring 2017. Robertson is the preferred contractor for the new facility and Forsyths of Rothes will be supplier of the distillation equipment.
Graham Hutcheon, Group Operations Director, Edrington, said: “Only the external appearance of the distillery will change, the exceptional quality of The Macallan, which has been produced for many years using copper stills from Forsyths, will not be compromised and the same focus on attention to detail and personal care of the whisky’s production will be upheld.The new distillery will undoubtedly become one of the most talked about distilleries, not only in Speyside but globally, and we look forward to starting on site soon.”
The Macallan is recognised around the world as a marque of excellence and craftsmanship. The new facility will embody The Macallan’s uncompromising approach to quality and luxury. Work on site is due to commence in October this year.
