The Linkwood distillery was originally established in the first half of the 19th century. It produces single malt whisky used in well-established blended whiskies.
The bottling plant is one of many projects that the Scottish team has undertaken for this key customer in recent years. The customer ordered a £90m upgrade of its existing site in Leven, which included the contract for the creation of the new bottling plant and associated facilities.
Our customer required a modern cooperage facility to produce new whisky storage barrels and renovate old ones. In addition to increasing productivity the new plant significantly reduces the amount of labour intensive manual handling the coopers undertake.
