Bruichladdich Distillery set for major whisky facilities expansion

Bruichladdich Distillery has awarded a multi-million pound construction contract to ISG for the expansion of its whisky facilities on the Isle of Islay, including six new warehouses of up to 32,000 sq ft.

The new Coultorsay maturation warehouse complex will be built at the award-winning distillery, which was founded in 1881, to ensure a continued commitment by the brand to maturing and bottling its range of whiskies and spirits on Islay, as global demand for its products continues to increase.

The company's vision is to build six bonded warehouses at the site, as well as a filling store, disgorging unit and external cask storage.

Bruichladdich Distillery produces mainly single malt Scotch whisky, but has also manufactured artisanal gin.
