Queens Dock distillery plans submitted
Plans to build a £10m Scotch whisky distillery and visitor centre within an historic former pumping house at Queens Dock, Glasgow, have been submitted by AD Rattray Scotch Whisky Company.

This calls for creation of a an interactive and education-focused visitor attraction and small batch single malt Scotch Whisky distillery complete with bar, café, tasting rooms and retail outlet.

Designed by Hypostyle-BR it would be the first distillery in Glasgow city centre for over 100 years and is intended to become a key tourist attraction between the recently unveiled Hydro Arena and Riverside Museum on the banks of the Clyde.

AD Rattray chief Tom Morrison said: “In the past, this building controlled the entry gate into the Queens dock, ensuring customs and excise could keep a close eye on goods in and out, including Scotch Whisky, so we are proud to bringing it back to similar good use”,

Subject to planning approval work could commence immediately with operations commencing by mid-2015.
