We are excited to reveal that construction has begun at the visitor centre and VIP suite at the Glencadam Distillery, Brechin.

DSSR is providing full Mechanical, Electrical and Public Health design duties in relation to the creation of a new Visitor’s Centre and VIP / Tasting Suite. Duties include energy compliance modelling for the new construction, together with site infrastructure consultancy.

Established in 1825 in the town of Brechin, Glencadam is one of the oldest distilleries in Scotland and the only remaining distillery within the Angus region. Whisky has been distilled at this Angus Dundee Distillers site for almost 200 years and the company are in the process of creating a new visitor experience on the site. The site has an internal fully operating working water wheel, and witnessing this in operation will form part of the future visitor tours.

The plans will develop existing buildings to incorporate a unique tour, whisky tasting area, tea room and shop, all designed to celebrate the history and heritage of Glencadam, one of the oldest distilleries in Scotland.

The designs will retain the original sandstone facade of the existing buildings, together with other integral features that date back almost 200 years, and blend this with some innovative new architecture.

There will also be newly designed offices, meeting rooms and tasting lab for the distillery team, all located in the original floor maltings, which are no longer in operation.
