Take a look inside The Macallan’s new space-age £140 million Scotch whisky distillery

Spirits giant Edrington has revealed the new distillery and visitor experience for legendary Scotch-producer The Macallan, and the photos are breathtaking.

Located on the Easter Elchies estate, where The Macallan’s whiskies have been produced for nearly 200 years, the new still-house cost £140m to build, forming part of Edrington’s much larger, £500m investment into the brand.

The space-age distillery — which has been built to reflect the surrounding hilly landscape in Craigellachie, Moray — was designed by Rogers Stirk harbour + Partners and realised by Elgin-based Robertson Construction, which recruited 400 people from 25 separate contractors to bring it to life.

The new distillery will allow production of The Macallan to increase by approximately a third.

The Macallan’s new distillery is expected to open in June 2018. Ian Curle, Edrington’s chief executive, said that the drinks giant hopes it will provide a much-needed boost to “the tourism industry, Scotch whisky exports, and the economy.”

The firm gave the drinks business a sneak peak  of the soon-to-be unveiled building.
