The Dalmore unveils distillery expansion plans

Scotch single malt whisky producer The Dalmore has announced a significant development project at its distillery.

An ambitious capital investment programme at the historic distillery, located on the Cromarty Firth, will see the development of a new whisky-making facility and visitor experience. 

Existing estate is set to be repurposed in the development, which will be centred arouond the pagoda at the Old Dalmore Kiln.

In accordance with parent group Whyte & Mackay's sustainability strategy, The Green Print, the new production facility will be built to high sustainability standards, including a green-energy power source.

The Dalmore said the distillery had managed to maintain a "uniquely intimate style" despite skyrocketing demand for its whisky, but acknowledged that the time had now come for expansion. Its vision for the project is "to honour the whisky-making artistry" that has been taking place at the distillery for 180 years.

Threesixty Architecture has been appointed as architect for the development and Blyth and Blyth as consulting engineer. Meanwhile, renowned still maker Forsyths is consulting on the process, particularly the whisky-making aspects.
