The Cairn Distillery

   Back to case studies



Nestled in the Cairngorms National Park, The Cairn is the first new distillery to be built in this region since the Park was founded.  This £25 million project by whisky specialists Gordon & MacPhail is designed as a modern home for the ancient craft of whisky making, with its eye-catching building respecting and reflecting its natural habitat and awe-inspiring backdrop.


Audio soundscapes, video displays and large-scale projections provide a secondary layer of storytelling narrative, further animating and enhancing the visitor experience throughout the different levels and phases of the distillery tour. To create this alluring brand experience, Sysco Productions were delighted to team up with the exceptional designers Studio MB as well as Morrison Construction to successfully integrate this unique experience.

Tom Spooner, Project Manager at Sysco Productions comments: “We were thrilled to support The Cairn Distillery and their project team with their ambition for this impressive visitor experience. It was a huge privilege to deliver the AV elements that act as a fundamental feature of the storytelling process, as well as form a crucial part of this remarkable whisky attraction that will entice visitors for years to come.”
