Brand Foundry built a portable Micro-Distillery for Three Ships Whisky. Yes, it works. No, you can’t take it home. Hell yeah, it’s fun to use. This apparatus takes the distilling out of the distillery and allows whisky lovers to blend their own entirely unique blend of whisky with an iPad.
Apart from being visually striking and factually accurate, it also needed to work as a functional blending machine, with the ability to blend four different whisky types.
Piece of pie (but not really).
After a visit to the Three Ships Distillery, the Brand Foundry team designed a stylised architectural model. With the help of a model builder, they replicated all the components on a micro level, and added lights, a custom smoke machine and speakers for sound effects.
The Micro-Distillery with custom electronics is controlled by an easy-to-use iPad app. The app allows users to blend an entirely unique whisky to suit their palates, in front of their very eyes, at events around the country.
The Three Ships Whisky Micro-Distillery will be on display at Whisky Live in Sandton 9-11 November 2016.
