Congratulations to Pernod Ricard on the ground breaking of their first Chinese Malt Whisky Distillery.

Innovative approach to whisky distilling

Located in the city of Emeishan in Sichuan province, the distillery will incorporate an innovative approach to malt whisky-making inspired by its surrounding area.

Pernod Ricard’s US$150m investment will be phased over the next decade. The design will adopt a vernacular approach, incorporating materials from the area.The distillery will house an “immersive” visitor centre which is set to open in 2021. PM Group has been leading this project since concept design and land selection as EPCM partner, realising the signature architectural design of Neri&Hu.

“It has been a great achievement to reach this milestone, overcoming the many challenges associated with this very unique project. This could not have been done without the fantastic support of our key partners. We look forward to our continued working with PM Group as we enter the next exciting phase,” said Ed Fells – VP Operations Pernod Ricard Asia

“This significant milestone follows two years of work developing the design which combines signature architecture with traditional distilling technology,” said Barry McFarlane – Project Director - PM Group
