Edrington Group Receives Planning Approval For New £100 Million Distillery

Scottish spirits producer Edrington Group has been granted planning permission by the Moray Council for a new £100 million iconic distillery and visitor centre in Speyside for The Macallan brand. Works will now progress on the delivery of the new facility which is scheduled to open to the public in Spring 2017. The Macallan is one of Edrington’s core brands.

Edrington has appointed Robertson as preferred contractor for the new facility, and Forsyths of Rothes as supplier of the distillation equipment.

Graham Hutcheon, Group Operations Director of Edrington, says: “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.”

In addition to creating a site of major architectural significance, the new distillery will ensure the on-going quality control of the production of The Macallan, both of which further consolidate The Macallan’s position as one of the world’s leading luxury spirits. Over time the distillery will deliver additional capacity to meet the growing demand from existing and new international markets.

With its rolling roofscape, the distillery has been designed to complement the natural beauty of the area and The Macallan Estate, which overlooks the River Spey.
