Colorado Construction is an engineering, construction and finishes business based in Scotland, with a specialisation in listed buildings, bespoke luxury homes, and the design and build of distilleries and visitor centres. Take a look at our Whisky Industry Capability Profile.
We are building a unique vertical distillery on nine levels in Edinburgh. The Port of Leith Distillery will create a one-of-a-kind experience for visitors, showcasing the full whisky life cycle up close. The view from here is amazing!
Colorado Construction is set to receive £2.7 million to progress green technologies and innovation in distilling. This project will see Colorado Construction, in conjunction with the University of Leeds and Clean Burner Systems, develop a biofuel gasification system that can help transition distillery operations towards carbon neutrality. You can read further details on our Green Distilleries Initiative here.
Colorado Construction has been successful in receiving a share of £10m in government funding to boost decarbonisation research and development in distilleries. We are specifically exploring hydrogen and dual hydrogen / biofuel burners for distilleries, and conversion of waste distillery draff and pot ale into a gasification-gas. Read further details here.
