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

According to the architects, the building is cut into the slope of the land, “taking its cues from ancient Scottish hills,” while also attempting to reduce the visual impact on the surrounding landscape in Speyside, which was classified as an Area of Great Landscape Value by the Scottish government.

The roofs are also covered with a layer of wildflowers, further integrating the design into its local environment.

Graham Stirk, the lead architect on the project, said that the historic Elchies Estate is a “truly is a special place; a place we have come to love and respect hugely. The vision was always ambitious but this enabled us to challenge our own thinking to create something so dramatic and awe-inspiring.”
