Scott Pallets supplies bespoke pallets to Harris Distillery

FirstCasksPalletsBased in the Outer Hebrides, the distillery has to address issues such as excessive weight bearing and an unusually long life span for holding whisky casks whilst the product matures in storage – the bespoke whisky pallets can withstand over 6000kg.

Simon Erlanger, managing director of Isle of Harris Distillers, said: “Scott Pallets was a natural choice when we needed to source pallets on which to store our precious casks on the island. It was a bonus to discover the family’s Harris roots and strong emotional ties to the place and we are delighted to be working with them”.

John Dye, product development manager at Scott Pallets, said: “We work alongside our customers to ensure that the pallets we manufacture are absolutely ‘fit for purpose’, with a particular focus on health and safety compliance. Our whisky pallets can withstand over 6000kg and are built to last – in fact, we are aware of pallets that we manufactured over 30 years ago still being used. We also use the latest pallet design technology to ensure the structure of the pallets is such that the casks and their precious contents are sufficiently supported.”
