The rolling roofscape of this building echoes the form of the surrounding hills and conceals an exceptionally well resolved and ingenious fusion of architecture, whisky technology and impactful interior settings displaying the heritage of the Macallan brand. Visitors arrive along a processional landscape walk. The internal journey continues under a warmly lit majestic double-curvature timber gridshell roof. The combination of atmospheric lighting with the architectural form and the intriguing arrangement of stills and exhibits creates a sense of drama throughout this hugely impressive building.
