Scottish Malt Distillery Mashing plant
Scope: Overall process design and build of new mashing plant for Scottish Malt Distillery
Briggs of Burton designed, built and installed a new full lauter tun as part of The Glenlivet’s Phase I expansion and capacity upgrade. The Glenlivet’s requirements for a new mashing plant were that it needed to achieve a high quality wort (clear) with a turnaround time.
The Glenlivet distillery is located in the Cairngorms National Park and “remains the benchmark that all other Speyside single malts are measured against”. Water is drawn from Josie’s Well, a source of hard mineral water, that enables complex aromas to develop during the distillation process. In the still house lantern-shaped stills give the spirit its outstanding balance and strong character.
