Gateway Distillery


Cairngorms National Park


Design Proposals

What is a modern Distillery? The brief for this project called for more than the creation of whisky production facility. This Distillery required to be an experiential destination and a true reflection of the modern face of the Whisky Industry.

Our proposals responded to the wider context of the Cairngorms and the local community, capitalising on the opportunities presented by a unique Speyside setting. The mass of the building is broken down into smaller
elements to work better within this protected setting. Built forms are then subsequently connected and unified through a series of stone walls that stretch out into the wider landscape.

The proposal, a gateway to the Speyside provides a unique Distillery set against a stunning landscape where key process events are revealed against different backdrops creating drama and theatre throughout the tour experience.
