Rosebank Distillery is officially 5-star says VisitScotland


The newly opened Rosebank Distillery is celebrating after being awarded five-stars by VisitScotland.  After more than three decades of closure, the once derelict Rosebank Distillery,  opened its doors at the beginning of June after being rebuilt by Ian Macleod Distillers following a four-year restoration project. The distillery was hailed “superb” by tourism officials who said that the renovations had been meticulously planned to create an excellent visitor attraction for visitors.

Commending the team at Rosebank for their “consistently high standard of hospitality and service”, VisitScotland also highlighted Rosebank’s effort to make the distillery as accessible as possible, and noted that every element of the visitor experience had been considered with this in mind, which is “highly unusual in this sector.” On the distillery building, it added that “the chimney is a great landmark… and all elements have been planned with care.”

Leonard Russell, Managing Director of Ian Macleod Distillers, said, “The last four years have been such a journey, and to see Rosebank Distillery standing tall and welcoming people through its doors for the first time in its history is incredible. The whole restoration process was so meticulous, with a huge amount of attention to detail going into each and every element, and to see visitors experiencing it for themselves is very special.

“To be recognised as a five-star attraction so soon after our opening is fantastic and testament to the hard work the whole team have put into the distillery’s revival. I couldn’t be more proud of what everyone has achieved and the legacy we’ve all created.”
