Glenmorangie today marks 175 years of whisky creation by announcing plans for a new still house.
Funded by a proposed multi-million-pound investment from its owner The Glenmorangie Company, the expansion would be designed to position the Highland distillery for ever-greater success.
Plans have been submitted, and subject to approval, Glenmorangie aims to start work this year, for completion in 2019, ensuring that the distillery can continue to satisfy the world’s growing appetite for its award-winning single malt Scotch whisky.
Established in 1843, Glenmorangie has long been renowned as an industry leader, marrying skill and creativity to craft excellent whisky.
The proposed new still house would be a fitting celebration of the distillery’s 175th anniversary, allowing Glenmorangie to increase capacity in line with rising global demand – and prepare for its next 175 years of whisky creation.
The planned new building will work in tandem with the existing still house and showcase two more of Glenmorangie’s signature copper stills, the tallest in Scotland. Alongside, a separate building is proposed to provide additional mashing and fermentation facilities.
Marc Hoellinger, president and CEO of The Glenmorangie Company, said: “It is a testament to the success of Glenmorangie, and to the increasing appreciation of our whisky creators’ vision and expertise, that we are able to plan with confidence for the future.
“We believe the proposed investment will support the distillery’s growth and ensure that many more discerning single malt whisky drinkers can discover the delights of our exceptional Highland single malt Scotch whisky.”
