Cardrona Distillery & Museum


Commercial – Working Whisky Distillery




Cardrona Valley


Phillip Puckey, Alpine Image Company & Anna Allan

Working with a determined and visionary client, this project was complex and challenging. Three simple buildings are arranged around a large open courtyard to form the heart of this working distillery.

Two large stone clad buildings are of traditional design. One building houses the distillery reception, cafe and tasting room, along with a large area dedicated to the history of the Cardrona Valley. The second building contains the working distillery on two floors with traditional copper stills, manufactured in Scotland. The third building contains the barrel storage room and a bottling room.

Located opposite the Cardrona Skifield entrance on the Cardrona Valley Road and flanked by 1500 damascene rose plants, the buildings sit strongly but unobtrusively in their rural setting.
