IES - How do you produce traditional whisky in an innovative space?

15th February 2022 6:30 pm

Online - Joint Meeting with Heriot-Watt University and IStructE

There is a beautiful, bold and modern building rising on Leith’s waterfront. The innovative vertical distillery reflects both the limitations of the site but also the ethos of the Port of Leith Distillery. The result is a modern landmark that compliments the history and other attractions in the Port of Leith. ………..but what does that mean for whisky production?

This lecture will look firstly at the structural engineering challenges of the building. We will then hear how this structure has changed process engineering for whisky production. We will find out the key elements of how to produce a traditional product in an innovative space.    

Ian Stirling is the Founder/Co-CEO of the Port of Leith Distillery
