Sector: Food & drink Completion date: April 2022

With phase 7 underway and phase 8 to come, once it is complete, this project will have delivered:

Our long-standing relationship is built on our understanding of the distillery sector and the quality we bring to each project. During this partnership, we also delivered The Macallan distillery and visitor experience, an iconic £140m project for Edrington.

Specialist warehouses for whisky

The eight phases range in value from £10m to £13m. Phase 7 is a £12.4m project due for completion in 2021, and like each phase of the project, it comprises:

Civil engineering and infrastructure for warehouses

In 2016–2017, in addition to two cask storage warehouses, we constructed a new tank farm, filling/disgorging store and an amenity building, as well as all associated civil and infrastructure works.

At the start of the project in 2012, Robertson also delivered significant work to create the infrastructure necessary to support the 16 warehouses that were to follow. This comprised:

These warehouses will complement the new distillery and continue The Macallan’s reputation for uncompromising quality and ensure that we can continue to supply the highest quality single malt Scotch whisky for generations to come.
