Glen Garioch 1978 Description
In the 1970s, an innovative waste-heat recovery system was installed at Glen Garioch, which not only supplied heat for the malt kiln and pre-heated the wash, but also warmed an acre of glasshouses and another acre of poly-tunnels.
The Glen Garioch Greenhouse Project was the brainchild of Morrison's production director, Alistair F Ross and the ever-ingenious Joe Hughes, advised by Morrison's Chief Engineer, Harry Cockburn, and supported by Jim McColl, presenter of BBC Scotland's popular Beechgrove Garden series. With planning permission granted in 1977, the distillery soon became famous for its tomatoes, peppers, aubergines and cucumbers. The project went on to be featured on the BBC's Tomorrow's World programme, and in 1982 was chosen to be part of the British Pavilion at the World Fair in Knoxville, Tennessee.
The project was discontinued in 1993.Back to top
