The waterfront plot will include a whisky laboratory, visitor centre, bar and bistro that will help the distiller up capacity to meet the demands of a burgeoning export market by drawing production in-house.
Incorporating dedicated bottling and warehousing facilities the building is yet to be put forward in a formal planning application but discussions with planners is said to be ‘advanced’.
Director of whisky Cara Laing commented: “We have long held this ambition for the company to operate its own distillery and bottling operation. We are proud of our Glasgow Heritage and the company, founded and based in the city, are delighted to announce this project on the banks of the Clyde; in the heart of Glasgow.
“It will bring whisky distilling back to the south side of the city and will create welcome jobs, generate significant additional high-value exports and hopefully become an additional tourist attraction to the city.”
The distillery HQ forms part of Drum Property Group's plans for 30,000sq/m of business space, 60 homes and amenity space spanning 3 hectares of land.
