Irish whiskey brand champions rural industry with a farmyard distillery

Organic Architects are transferring their taste for whiskey across the Irish Sea after securing approval for a new distillery in Limavady, near Coleraine, Ireland.

Introducing more than just an additional letter 'e' the architects are working with the Limavady whiskey brand to deliver a striking new building that looks to the future under the ownership of master distiller Darryl McNally while celebrating a proud history stretching back to 1750.

Working with local architect Gerard McPeake in a mountain landscape made famous by Game of Thrones the distillery will rise on McNally's family farm, blending into its rural environment.

Gareth Roberts, founder of Organic Architects, said:  “This project is unusual in that the new distillery will be located on the McNally family farm, signifying a return to home soil for the founder Darryl McNally. It is a beautiful rural site, so it has taken time to design a sensitive building which is acceptable to the local authority. Fantastic views of the coastline and the mountains are retained with the new building situated in the farm yard and incorporated into the surrounding farm buildings”.

Construction of Limavady Distillery is now clear to begin later this year.
