Aultmore Distillery goes for expansion

Bacardi-owned Aultmore Distillery in Scotland has announced a £15m expansion plan, set to double its production capacity by spring 2024.

The expansion works include the addition of fermenters, pot-stills and infrastructure, and will also see a new heat-recovering system installed which will reduce the distillery’s energy usage and carbon footprint.

The announcement comes as the distillery marks 125 years since it first went into production in 1897. Founded by local businessman and philanthropist, Alexander Edward, Aultmore Distillery produces well-loved single malt whisky, Aultmore, an award-winning brand that is now sold around the world.
