Whisky trade body toasts office

The Scotch Whisky Association (SWA) has blended the traditional with the modern at its new offices in Edinburgh’s Quartermile development.

The trade body has built a display of Scotch bottles in the reception of its modernist glass and steel tower to remind visitors of the whisky industry’s heritage. The SWA moved from Atholl Crescent in Edinburgh’s New Town to the site of the former Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh on Lauriston Place in the Old Town.

Kenny Myles, director at Jones Lang LaSalle, which acted on behalf of the SWA, said: “The association’s new space is bright, energetic, sustainable and well located. Most importantly, it is fit for the demands of a modern business and to successfully protect and promote the interests of the association’s members.”
