Moffat craft whisky distillery boosts Dark Sky Park draw
October 23 2019
Organic Architects have brought forward plans for a craft distillery and visitor centre at Old Carlisle Road, Moffat, on behalf of Dark Sky Spirits.
Incorporating a small shop and tasting room the facility is planned for vacant land to the south of the town and will adopt an agricultural character with a feature gable providing housing distillation equipment.
Finished in black stained timber cladding and curtain wall glazing the distillery aims to broaden the appeal of Moffat as a visitor destination.
Documenting their proposals the architects wrote: “To integrate effectively with the surrounding context, the building is agricultural in character, a simple mass and roof form is proposed with a restrained material palette. A feature gable is proposed, this helps to identify the building as a distillery, and provides sufficient height for the distilling equipment only where required.”
The 467sqm building has been designed to comply with Dumfries & Galloway Council’s dark skies strategy.
