Single malt, double glazed

Architect Archial Norr has proved itself more than capable of arranging a booze-fuelled social event in an alcohol production facility with its bold design for the Chivas Brothers’ new £30m Dalmunach distillery, the famous whisky firm’s 15th. Designed to showcase the inner workings of the distillery, the design uses Kawneer’s AA 110 dry-glazed, externally capped curtain walling at both ends of its pitched-roof structure, its 65mm profile allowing for the necessary movement of the 11m2, 36mm thick double-glazed units. The distillery produces over 1m litres of whisky a year with water drawn from springs of the River Spey.
