The Highland Scotch whisky brand Glenmorangie celebrated 175 years this week with announcement of a new still house.
The Glenmorangie Company will fund the expansion with a “multi-million-pound investment,” the company says.
Subject to planning approval, Glenmorangie aims to start work this year, for completion in 2019. A new still house would be a “fitting celebration” of the Distillery’s 175th anniversary, the company says, allowing Glenmorangie to increase capacity in line with rising global demand for Scotch.
This new building, located in the heart of the distillery, will work in tandem with the existing still house while containing two more of Glenmorangie’s copper stills.
Under plans, a separate building will provide additional mashing and fermentation facilities.
“It is a testament to the success of Glenmorangie, and to the increasing appreciation of our whisky creators’ vision and expertise, that we are able to plan with confidence for the future,” says Marc Hoellinger, president and CEO of The Glenmorangie Company. “We have decided to invest in a new still house to support the Distillery’s growth and ensure that many more discerning single malt whisky drinkers can discover the delights of Glenmorangie.”
