Roseisle Distillery, Elgin

Austin-Smith: Lord LLP

This £40m project is the first major distillery to be built in Scotland for 30 years. The building is a modern interpretation of the traditional still house and maximises natural ventilation and daylight. It has three key external forms which reflect the internal functions. The timber-clad barrel structure, with a full-height glazed gable, showcase the 14 stills; the central copper clad accommodation block contains the two big mash tuns and control centre; and the metal-clad tun rooms hold the 14 fermentation tanks, four of which are visible from the main road. The overall impression is of a confident iconic building.
