ISG has been awarded the £5m first phase of an expansion of the Bruichladdich Distillery on the Isle of Islay, in Scotland’s Inner Hebrides.

The new Coultorsay maturation warehouse complex will increase capacity at the distillery, which was founded in 1881. The bigger plan is to build six bonded warehouses at the site, as well as a filling store, disgorging unit and external cask storage.

Phase one of the development sees ISG construct the first of the new warehouses, delivering a single-storey, 2,000m2 steel-frame structure. ISG will also build new road infrastructure and introduce mains services across the site alongside the existing distillery. The contractor will also undertake preparatory ground works to enable the construction of the five additional maturation warehouses, which will vary in size from approximately 2,000 to 3,000 m2.

ISG regional managing director Andy McLinden said: “Bruichladdich Distillery is an important addition to our growing portfolio of customers operating within the luxury drinks sector. We continue to secure repeat opportunities with the world’s leading premium drinks businesses, delivering projects valued in excess of £50m in recent years.”
