Its three copper pot stills had to be lowered in through the roof as the beams of the original structure could not be moved, a “hairy moment” in the distillery’s building, says Conyngham.

The distillery also boasts six column stills, and this was because Conyngham was not allowed to build column stills six or seven storeys high due to the site’s protected status. So the decision was taken to half their size and double the quantity.
