Bill Robertson, Ian Curle and Graham Stirk at The Macallan distillery

Edrington has marked the official start of works on its iconic new distillery and visitor centre for The Macallan.

The Macallan is one of the core brands of Edrington, Scotland’s premier producer and distributor of global spirits brands.

Edrington Chief Executive, Ian Curle was joined on site at The Macallan estate in Speyside by Bill Robertson, Executive Chairman of Robertson and Graham Stirk, Partner of Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, to mark the occasion.

Ian Curle said: “Today represents an exciting new chapter for Edrington and a major step in The Macallan’s long term commitment to be the leading premium spirit in the world. The collaboration between Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners (RSHP), Robertson, and Forsyths brings together one of the world’s leading architects and the elite of Scottish craftsmen. Over the next three years we will bring The Macallan brand experience to life in a truly unique style.”

Bill Robertson said: “We are delighted to officially commence works today.  The site will be dramatically transformed over the coming months as the iconic distillery and visitor centre starts to take shape.  By understanding the vision of The Macallan and working in partnership with them, RSHP and Forsyths, we will deliver a truly beautiful and inspirational building.”

The new facility received planning permission in August this year and the project will deliver significant benefits to the national and local economy.

Designed by RSHP to complement the natural beauty of the area and The Macallan Estate, which overlooks the River Spey, the new home of The Macallan is scheduled to open to the public in spring 2017. 

Graham Stirk, lead architect and Partner, RSHP, said: “Our design for the distillery and visitor centre celebrates the whisky-making process as well as the environment that has inspired it. The design is essentially a series of a grass-covered undulating roof forms that are sympathetic to this Area of Great Landscape Value. Together we are creating a bespoke building for The Macallan that will further enhance the visitor experience whilst ensuring the on-going quality of this unique Single Malt.”

Ian Curle concluded: “Respected local crafts and skills are at the heart of The Macallan’s uncompromising approach to quality, and we are very pleased to be working with both Robertson and Forsyths to write the next chapter in the history of The Macallan.”
