422 Distils concepts for Tullibardine

Edinburgh group 442 Design has been appointed to create interiors for a shop, restaurant and attraction at the Tullibardine Distillery in Perthshire, Scotland, in a project worth £500 000 in design fees. The consultancy was appointed last week after a five-way creative pitch against unnamed rivals. Following a ten-year absence, Tullibardine aims to restart its whisky production by the end of the year and 442’s work is scheduled for completion in August next year.

The distillery aims to attract around 250 000 visitors per annum, says Tullibardine director Doug Ross.

The attraction will sit within a larger, 4645m2 retail development, currently under construction that will house anchor tenants including Baxters Foods.

It will offer a tour of the whisky distilling process and aims to provide a ‘contemporary experience’, says 442 director David Dunn, who is working with 2D creative director Peter Fox and 3D creative director Kevin Rettie on the project.

A mezzanine restaurant and a retail outlet will sit adjacent to the visitor attraction.

Tullibardine’s identity has been redesigned by Wolffe & Co and will feature on packaging, labelling and other branding from Christmas.
