Pernod Ricard wins consent for Glenlivet distillery upgrade
The planning application was part of a feasibility study
Chivas Brothers, Pernod Ricard's Scotch whisky unit, has secured planning permission to expand its Glenlivet distillery.
A company spokesperson told just-drinks the permission, granted late last week, allows for “production increases to secure long-term demands”. Chivas applied for planning permission as part of a feasibility project “to define the scope of future operations” at the distillery, including extra water treatment equipment, the spokesperson said, but declined to offer further detail on the project.
The Glenlivet Speyside single malt performed well in Pernod's Q1 results, released in August, with sales up 8% and volumes climbing 2%.
According to the Press & Journal newspaper, the planning consent for the Glenlivet distillery could see production tripled. It also said the application included a new processing building for distilling operations, a new tank and equipment area, a replacement biofuel plant and new pipework.
