Ogilvy Spirits Tasting Room and Visitor Experience

Ogilvy Spirtes Bottle - Angus Leader
Overview

A tasting room and visitor experience is being developed at Ogilvy, to allow a planned and organised response to continual casual demand for public tours of the distillery, originally developed as a diversification from potato production. This enhances the visitor experience in the area, and is nearby to Glamis Castle, Angus’ premier visitor attraction. The project also allows the projected revenues from the visitor enterprise to deliver significant support to local community organisations.

What has been your greatest achievement so far?

The greatest achievement so far has been the reaction and the feedback from visitors coming to the distillery and visitor centre, and the tour we have on offer, in that it is so different to other distilleries.

How has your project benefited your local area?

The business has attracted visitors to the area who initially come to visit and have a tour of the distillery but also visit the local cafe and other visitor attractions.

What has been your biggest challenge?

The biggest challenge to date and still ongoing is the signage to get visitors to the centre.
