After 25 years of silence… a sleeping giant awakens. Once the beating heart of the Scottish town of Falkirk, Rosebank Distillery produced a whisky that was often described as the ‘King of the Lowlands’ until it's gates closed in 1993. Saved from becoming a footnote in history by Ian Macleod Distillers in 2017, now the painstaking process of restoring and reopening the distillery has begun.
The project works feature the refurbishment of existing bonded warehouses and the construction of a new distillery building which adjoins the existing warehouses, external landscaping and the provision of a new car park.
The project will be around the half-way point. We are underway with two refurbishments and the new distillery steel frame and building envelope will be installed. We will have items of the processing kit on site and the construction site will be live with around 40-50 operative working.
We’ll provide an introduction to the project, and the different roles available within construction, before taking you on a tour of the site.
Information on Open Doors 2022 will be released shortly
