Port of Leith Distillery

Working closely with our Client to design Scotland’s first vertical distillery has been a hugely enjoyable experience. The design of the building will reflect their ambition to present an exciting, modern face for the Scotch Whisky Industry and will encompass their core values of Innovation, Education and Openness.

The nine-storey building demands a gravity-led whisky production process which, in turn, will provide visitors with a distillery experience unlike any other; from the mashtun on the 5th floor to the washbacks on the 3rd, visitors will follow the nascent whisky all the way to the gleaming copper stills at ground level. Afterwards, from the rooftop bar and restaurant, they will be able to enjoy a unique view of Edinburgh to the west and across the Firth of Forth to Fife in the east.

At almost 40 metres in height, the Port of Leith Distillery will become a major new landmark for the city and a welcoming beacon for the many cruise ships that now dock in Leith.
