Bringing modern solutions to traditional aesthetics at Glengoyne Distillery 

  • Brightsign Media Player
  • Dual commercial grade 65” Samsung screens
  • Bluetooth

Glengoyne Distillery, nestled on the outskirts of Glasgow, is a renowned producer of premium whisky and spirits in the heart of Scotland. One of its standout features is its immersive guided whisky tours for its guests, which are set against the picturesque backdrop of the local hills and glens.

The team at the distillery approached us through our showcase campaigns on social media, seeking to upgrade their visual and connective system in order to blend with the traditional, sleek setting of their visitor experience centre.

Glengoyne had an existing visual system for presenting videos and information during tours within their comfortable relaxation area. However, the system was outdated and was frequently disrupted by display issues. It was time for a sleek, modern upgrade that seamlessly integrates with the room’s aesthetic and is user-friendly for onsite employees. Our task was clear: to enhance the guest experience through innovative technology solutions that did not distract from the tours and the traditional setting of the room.

Working closely with the distillery’s team, we replaced the outdated screens with two commercial-grade 65” Samsung screens – blending into the space with architecturally trimmed white frames. These screens, resembling framed pictures, elevated the room’s ambience while delivering superior video quality.

To streamline operations, we installed a Brightsign Unit – a commercial signage media player – for easy content management and playback. This dedicated unit eliminated the need for cumbersome laptop connections, allowing employees to access and upload content effortlessly from anywhere within the network. Additionally, we connected a Bluetooth system for direct input from users’ mobile devices into a pre-existing audio setup – ensuring a smooth sound experience.

What sets this project apart is the discreet yet powerful technologies that are woven into the space. While the setup may appear minimalist, its functionality and connectivity offer a truly immersive experience for guests.

After installation, our team trained the onsite employees at Glengoyne on the new systems’ capabilities. Through these comprehensive sessions, we ensured that the client was fully equipped to maximise the potential of combined solutions.

Following the successful integration, we maintain regular communication with Glengoyne’s team, providing ongoing support and assistance with maintenance as needed. Our collaboration with the distillery was a testament to our commitment to bringing modernity to the most traditional spaces. Our team thoroughly enjoyed this experience, and we cannot wait to get started on similar projects.
