Roll out the Barrel....

Alba Systems have just completed a multi-level staircase to allow access to whiskey barrels at Inverhouse Distillers.

To be called Scotch Whiskey the product has to be kept in a cask for a minimum of three years.
The barrels have to be checked periodically to check the Angels aren't helping themselves to a cheeky wee extra share.

After the racking was installed Alba Systems installed an impressive three level staircase with a top level at almost 8M to provide access to the barrels of the liquid gold.

Whilst touring the site Stuart Torrance of Alba Systems witnessed a barrel of 50 year old whiskey being opened and sent for bottling. It's incredible to think the guy who laid the cask to rest 50 years ago will be long retired as it was laid down to mature in May 1964.
