Steel delivering new Highlands distillery
Located 30 miles north of Inverness in the Averon Valley, the £15M Ardross Distillery is taking shape with the aid of steel construction.
The scheme includes constructing a new two-storey steel-framed main distillery building, which incorporates some retained stone walls from the site’s previous farm complex.
Stone and slate is being salvaged from the old buildings and will be used to rebuild walls and roofs of the development.
Working on behalf of main contractor Morrison Construction, Mackay Steelwork & Cladding is erecting approximately 200t of steel for the project.
The Ardross Distillery will produce spirits and expects to launch its first product onto the market later this year.
