Fibre cement profiled sheeting from Marley Eternit has been chosen for use on a Scottish distillery.
Ten years after Inver House Distillers took the out of mothballs, it is enjoying another new lease of life, thanks to Marley Eternit’s fibre cement profiled sheeting and the manufacturer’s own workforce.
Some 340sq m of Marley Eternit’s profiled sheeting, pre-painted slate blue, was installed on the roof of the Balmenach distillery. A further 410sq m was used on the sides of a cooperage/filling store for the distillery that nestles in the bottom of the Haughs of Cromdale in the Spey Valley.
The re-sheeting has allowed the cooperage to become a secure filling store. This has doubled the area available to fill the precious liquid into casks as well as making the main entrance a lot more pleasing to the eye.
So pleased are owners Inver House Distillers with the result, they are considering using this product to replace a total of 7,000sq m of roofing on more buildings on the site, including a still house, grain store and the main bonded warehouse.
