Royal Oak Distillery
It was important to ensure that the large production areas could safely operate along-side the extensive office and ancillary areas; and that sufficient measures were in place in all parts of the building to allow all occupants to escape safely in the event of a fire in the facility.
A key consideration for this type of facility is to ensure that a large volume of water for fire-fighting is available on site, due to the highly combustible nature of the product and the significant volumes produced.
The ponds on site are sized and designed so that there is sufficient water available for day-to-day production use and that water levels are also maintained at all times to enable fire-fighting.
Royal Oak Distillery is still creating high-quality hand-crafted whiskey and give multi-sensory tours of their facilities within a safe environment. The distillery gives a unique experience to customers of a whiskey distillery and of the beautiful estate in which the distillery is located on. What’s unique about this distillery is that it uses the environment to help fire fighters to put out fires by using the lake.
