Macallan - Whiskey Destillerie

Macallan - Whiskey Destillerie

Thousands of RAPID® screws used in the spectacular roof structure of the new whiskey distillery!

The construction of a new distillery for the renowned Scottish whiskey maker Macallan started in April 2016.

The heart of the project is the quite spectacular roof structure: A green roof spans across a row of five domes with a total length of about 200 metres. To accomplish this an existing hill was dug out, so the new building for the company is harmoniously integrated into the landscape.
