The Dalmore plans distillery expansion
Whyte & Mackay has submitted a planning application to expand its single malt distillery The Dalmore.
The project will see the distillery, based at its current estate at the Cromarty Firth, Scotland, expanded.
Whyte & Mackay is aiming to produce a new whisky-making facility and visitor experience through a capital investment programme.
Honouring the ‘whisky-making artistry’ of The Dalmore with the project, the character of the estate will be retained.
Whyte & Mackay is also hoping to secure a ‘sustainable future’ for The Dalmore Distillery, which aligns with the company’s sustainability strategy The Green Print. The Green Print was published in 2021, with the aim of achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2040.
The investment will lead to the site transitioning to a ‘green energy solution’, according to Whyte & Mackay.
Threesixty Architecture has been appointed as the architects of the project, while whisky industry authority Forsyths are consulting on the process and the whisky-making aspect of the development.
In March, The Dalmore partnered with Block Bar to launch its 33-year-old single malt Scotch whisky in the form of 223 NFT bottles.
Last year, the brand debuted its 30 Year Old 2021 Edition, the first bottling in a new annual series.
