Copper stills arrive at Roseisle plant
Diageo has installed 14 new copper stills at the Roseisle Distillery it is building in Morayshire.
The plant , costing £40 million , is the first major new distillery in Scotland for 30 years. The first spirit is due to run through the stills in early 2009.
The stills each weigh between five and six tonnes and were built by coppersmiths at Diageo's own Abercrombies workshop in Alloa.
Malt distilling director Brian Higgs said: "Traditional coppersmith skills have a huge influence on the spirit which is produced."
