We are delighted that construction is underway on the new Visitor Centre and VIP Suite at Glencadam Distillery, Brechin. jmarchitects have been working closely with our client, Angus Dundee Distillers since 2019 to develop new facilities that bring a rich visitor experience to the historic whisky site.

Glencadam began production in 1825 and is now the only Distillery in the county of Angus. The new Visitor Centre will provide a shop, exhibition space, tasting rooms, a whisky lounge, with a café and function room on the first floor.

An architectural landmark of many distilleries are the pagoda roofs of the malt kilns, known as Doig Ventilators and these were once a key feature at Glencadam Distillery before they were tragically destroyed by fire. The new visitor centre draws upon this rich heritage, reinterpreting the Doig Ventilators and utilising a robust yet dignified palette of materials to create variety in elevational approach and character.

We look forward to working with main contractor, Linear Design & Construct and delivering this exciting new Visitor Centre for Angus Dundee Distillers.
