Bottoms up: Clegg Food Projects begins work at new distillery

National construction company Clegg Food Projects is working on a scheme to construct a new head office, production, and distribution centre for Alcohols Limited, near Watling Street on the A5, northeast of Rugby.

Part of the family-owned Palmer Group, Alcohols Limited Langley Distillery, creates the core alcohol for more than 75% of Britain’s artisan gins. The firm has appointed Clegg Food Projects as the principal contractor to construct a new state-of-the-art distillery, head office, and large span portal frame structure for storage and distribution.

The site will become Alcohols Limited’s new head office when it opens its doors to staff in the next two to three years.

Oliver Jenkins, business development manager at Clegg Food Projects, said:

“We are thrilled that Alcohols Limited Langley Distillery has appointed us to construct its new facility as the company looks to future growth.

“We’ve worked on several beverage facilities – particularly breweries – across the UK but not a core alcohol facility, so this is an interesting project for the team. It brings together all our experience and expertise but on a fresh project and we’re thrilled to be making good progress on site

“It is an exciting time for Palmer Group as the site marks a milestone for the company as they look to expand, and as the principal contractors, we are pleased to be part of their journey.”

Alcohols Limited also produces, stores, and distributes fine alcohols, and downstream industrial products to a wide range of application industries.

Adam Wallis, managing director at Alcohols Limited, said:

“The new site will bring significant manufacturing capability and allow the business to grow and prosper. The excellent transport connections, by train and road – including the A14, M1, and M6 – are all an added benefit for moving to the region. We are pleased to have Clegg Food Projects supporting us in this transformational project.”
