A land deal has been agreed for a new multi-million pound ‘whisky experience’ in Stirling.
Wolfcraig Distillery has signed a contract with Ambassador Group to build the £15m development on the grounds of the Craigforth Campus – which previously housed the headquarters of insurance giant Prudential.
John Moore, director at Wolfcraig Distillery, said: “Our new home has better links to public transport and is much closer to the heart of Stirling, making it easier for visitors and tourists to access the distillery.
“We are keen to be an integral part of Stirling’s hospitality and leisure sector and so moving to this site makes a lot of commercial sense.
“The masterplan for the Craigforth Campus is extremely exciting and will complement our ambitious plans for Wolfcraig.
“We are looking forward to being located alongside other dynamic businesses and amenities as this development progresses.”
As reported by STV News previously, the project will incorporate a distillery, an interactive visitor attraction, private tasting room and a 180-seat bistro restaurant and bar.
The facility will have the capacity to produce up to 1.5 million litres of spirit per year and will focus on making premium Wolfcraig Highland single malt Scotch whisky and a range of other drinks.
The distillery’s interactive visitor centre will showcase tales of Scotch whisky and the history of Stirling. The site will also offer tours and a range of different experiences and masterclasses.
Chris Richardson, managing director of Ambassador Investments, said: “We are very excited that Wolfcraig see their future as part of our Craigforth development and it’s great news for our overall masterplan.
“We have been extremely impressed by the vision of the Wolfcraig management team and look forward to being a part of their journey.”
