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.

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 |
