Fitout firm Marcon has been awarded a £1 million contract to complete work on Hinch Distillery in County Down, which expects to accommodate 100,000 visitors a year and is scheduled to open in September.
The 30,000 sq ft two-storey building will include a large whiskey and gin distillery as well as an interactive visitor centre, coffee shop, retail area, outside courtyard space and multi-purpose events spaces.
Marcon will work in partnership with design company Drinksology to deliver owner Dr Terry Cross’ vision to create the unique facility, and will be responsible for delivering the full fit-out, which will include all specialist joinery items such as feature bars, bespoke wall panelling, fixed furniture and floor and ceiling finishes.
Dr Cross said: “We are launching the Hinch Distillery to provide visitors with a highly differentiated product and experience that couples the production of our quality spirits with a story and heritage.”
The distillery recently signed export deals in Asia and is in line to achieve its target of sales in 23 global markets.
