Located in the Scottish Highlands, the Tullibardine Highland Scotch Malt Whisky distillery produces, ships and sells globaly over three million litres of acclaimed whisky per year. It is one of the few distilleries in Scotland to distil, mature and bottle all on one site. Operating in warehousing and storage areas where whisky vapour emissions can be present, it was essential that any material handling equipment operating at the facility could be easily adapted with fire protection systems which provide audible and visual warnings of potential fire hazards.
Revolutionary when built in 1881, Bruichladdich Distillery remains at the forefront of modern whisky distilling. Today, under the ownership of Rémy Cointreau, Bruichladdich retains its heritage by using 100% Scottish-grown barley, trickle distilled through tall stills before being matured for all its life in warehouses on the shores of the Isle of Islay. Many of the processes require product to be transported between locations throughout the site – a requirement that places tough demands on its material handling equipment.
