On our 2,960-square-meter premises stands the distillery building,
the maturation warehouse, and the office.
The white-walled distillery building looks splendid silhouetted against the blue sky,
and has windows arranged to let in plenty of naturallight,
including round windows that make a striking architectural impression.
The simply designed distillery, containing two pot stills and six washbacks,
is conducive to smooth workflows.
We plan to produce 30,000 liters the first year of operations,
some of which is scheduled to be sold three years later.

The two pot stills are a 5,000L wash still (pictured right-for first distillation) and
