Spirit distillery

I’m truly delighted to have had the opportunity to design, build, and commission a 3 MLPA malt whisky and 30 MLPA grain alcohol distillery for the Shanghai Bacchus company. This project offered me a great experience as an engineer, and it’s a testament to what can be achieved when passion meets precision in the world of distillery engineering.”
