Plans revealed for landmark whisky distillery
Located 30 miles west of Glasgow, the Ardgowan Distillery has unveiled plans for its landmark whisky distillery and visitor centre.
The project’s design is said to use low environmental impact composite cladding, timber and steelwork to create a light-filled modern Nordic-style long hall.
The building is designed to provide an ergonomic, energy-efficient distillery that will enhance the visitor experience by incorporating a glass-walled ‘sky platform’ with views of the River Clyde.
Distillery CEO Martin McAdam said: “This project will be a major boost to the local economy – both during construction and in operation. We estimate the distillery and visitor centre will create up to 47 new jobs within five years.
“We have a very strong commitment to employing locally and our ambition is to use local firms and employees as much as we can.
“Our goal is to build a world-class whisky distillery and visitor centre which will attract tourists and bring economic and social benefits to Inverclyde.”
