DISTILLERY DIARIES III

Distillery Diaries is a series of short films that explore our journey to making whiskey history in the West of Ireland. Part III in the series is a conversation with Ahascragh Distillery’s Architect, Gareth Roberts. 

Gareth is Founder and Director of Organic Architects, an architecture firm specialising in the design of distilleries. A whiskey enthusiast, Gareth is a member of the Scotch Malt Whisky Society and holds a qualification from the Institute of Brewing and Distilling. He has worked on multiple distillery design projects including Lindores Abbey Distillery, Ardnamurchan Distillery and NcNean Distillery. 

Distillery’s have to be beautiful buildings and can you think of another building type that somebody says this has to be a beautiful building? Sadly, schools are not like that anymore. Train stations are not like that anymore… We’re so lucky, distillery buildings, I think, are the last beautiful building type.” Gareth Roberts, Organic Architects
