New Macallan Distillery Opens on Speyside

May 2018

Edrington, the international premium spirits company, has revealed the new distillery and visitor experience for The Macallan. The new distillery and visitor experience is located on the stunning Easter Elchies estate, which has been home to the leading luxury single malt since 1824. Edrington is investing £500 million in the brand of which the £140 million distillery is the centre piece. The new distillery will enable production of The Macallan to increase by a third if required.

Equals provided project and cost management on the project, working with architects Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners and the project team from the project’s inception to completion to deliver this striking piece of contemporary architecture. The undulating timber roof structure is one of the most complicated timber roof structures in the world, comprising 380,000 individual components.

Graham Hutcheon, Managing Director Group Operations, Edrington said: “The successful construction of this exciting new distillery and visitor experience has been made possible through hard work, commitment, innovation and collaboration driven by our team.”
