Flowcrete floor for the Macallan Visitor Experience Tour

Flowcrete UK’s wide range of specialist screed and resin flooring solutions was utilised by the international spirits group Edrington to make The Macallan’s new, £140 million distillery an architectural masterpiece.

The distillery consists of five cells , of which four house the production operations and one the visitor centre. The industrial elements of the site were provided with Flowfresh HF LT, while the new centre utilised a range of decorative resin flooring solutions. 3,669 m2 of Isocrete K-Screed and 4,890 m2 of Flowscreed Industrial Top were used to create robust screed layers that would provide level and reliable platforms for the resin finishes.

The main internal tourist routes and viewing gallery were coated with the fast curing, methyl methacrylate (MMA) resin floor topping Flowfast Quartz Structure. The Flowfast Quartz Structure was even applied on the innovative suspended walkway that runs across the top of the distillery’s large tanks.

The barrel room has been turned into a private cellar that displays each cask like a gallery, putting the visitor in the centre of a semi-circle of back-lit barrels. 303 m2 of the self-smoothing epoxy system Peran SL in a glossy black finish was applied to create a sleek and reflective floor. 745 m2 of Isocrete Isopol SBR was applied in this area to produce a reliable and durable polymer modified wearing screed for the Peran SL to lay upon.

The bonded gravel system Naturewalk was used for the distillery’s external perimeter walkway. Naturewalk is a seamless, slip resistant coating designed to reflect the natural beauty of the outdoors. This combination of properties tied into the site’s aesthetics and ensures a safe finish able to survive heavy foot traffic and the weather.
