After 100 years, whisky production has restarted at the recently completed new Clydeside Distillery on the banks of the River Clyde in Glasgow.
The stunning design by Hypostyle Architects combines historical character with contemporary architecture and features Senior’s high-performance aluminium curtain walling and commercial doors.
An extensively glazed modern extension to the old Pump House, which was built in 1877 on the historic Queen’s Dock, has been created using Senior’s slim profile structurally glazed SF52 aluminium curtain wall system. Centre stage within the extension are the distillery’s two tonne twin copper stills which provide a focal point for visitors to Glasgow’s latest tourist attraction.
Clydeside distillery began its first distillation run in November 2017, but its whisky won’t be matured and ready for release until at least 2020. Meanwhile visitors can enjoy the purpose-built visitor centre and café at the multi-million pound development which feature Senior’s robust SPW 500 commercial doors, an ideal choice for high traffic areas.
