Master Of Malt Harnesses Cutting-Edge Tech For World-First Whisky Distillery
4D Whisky
01 April 2018
Master of Malt – best known as a multi-award-winning spirits retailer – reveals plans to use cutting-edge additive processes to build a state-of-the-art whisky distillery and produce truly innovative new whiskies.

Leading online retailer Master of Malt has announced plans to build a revolutionary whisky distillery, set to transform how the world views distilling.

Further details of this exciting venture into distilling have been disclosed in an exclusive video, which can be viewed here.

By harnessing cutting-edge 3D and 4D printing technology, Master of Malt is constructing a whisky distillery from scratch, using the latest in cutting-edge additive manufacturing techniques not only in the build itself, but also to produce the stills, casks and all other materials required for whisky production.

“We’ve always dreamed about having our own whisky distillery, and have also closely followed innovations in other industries,” said Jake Mountain, Master of Malt project and distillery manager.

“In many ways our passion for both drinks and technology meant reaching this point was inevitable, but it’s still required a lot of dedication and hard work from the whole team.”

When finished, the site will offer the highest possible levels of distilling innovation and flexibility, allowing multiple whisky styles to be produced in one place, with minimal waste and maximum efficiency.

In addition, the retailer has revealed details of exclusive lab experiments into 4D whisky production.

Lead additive engineer Avi Pernrit explains, "4D printing sees programmable 3D-printed materials change over time when exposed to predetermined stimuli such as heat or light. This revolutionary technology means the distillery can control variables of whisky production like never before, and create entirely new spirit styles."

Master of Malt will break ground on the rapid new distillery build in the coming weeks, with spirit set to flow from the 3D-printed stills this summer.
