Ensuring the health and safety of our employees and the local community is our highest priority. On Thursday 7 June we voluntarily took our cooling towers off-line until the legionella results from samples taken earlier this week are reported. While this precautionary operation is under way we have temporarily ceased distillation. Industrial cooling towers remain only one potential source of the infection and North British Distillery is one of a number of sites with such towers in Edinburgh.

We continue to work closely with the HSE and all other relevant authorities in relation to this issue. North British Distillery would like to reaffirm that the Improvement Notice issued by the HSE today does not mean that this cooling tower has been identified as the source of the outbreak.
