GIN and whisky distiller Eden Mill has submitted a planning application for a £3.1 million development of new production facilities in St Andrews, Fife.
The move, which is part of a wider £8 million investment programme, will see whisky capacity increase from 300,000 litres per annum to over one million bottles per year.
Sustainability will be high on the agenda, with the new facility aiming to achieve a zero carbon footprint.
Paul Miller, co-founder of Eden Mill said, “The Eden Mill at the Eden Campus is the perfect location to create our innovative new distillery and production facility. The demand for the Eden Mill wide range of whisky and gin products is growing at a rapid pace and this modern new plant will help us satisfy that demand and expand even further. It will also create a great new working environment for all of the team behind Eden Mill’s continued success.”
The upgrade involves around £1.1 million in building works and £2 million in plant expansions.
The architects for the project are Glasgow-based Opfer Logan. Lead architect David Martin commented, “We’re delighted to be partnering Eden Mill on the design of their new high-tech distillery. We believe the design strategy driving this project reflects the creativity behind the Eden Mill brand and their award-winning portfolio of gins, whiskies and beers.”
The development is expected to be completed by summer 2020.
