Hargreaves Land is working with the established scotch whisky operator John Dewar and Sons to deliver over 1 million sq ft of bonded warehousing at Poniel in South Lanarkshire.
With excellent transport links both to the north and south via the M74, the location enables John Dewar and Sons to meet their delivery deadlines as well as satisfying tachograph limitations. The new facility will enable storage of maturing spirits for the company’s range of premium scotch whiskies.
As part of the phased build, a total of 135,000 trees and shrubs will be planted at Poniel. The trees will provide a natural screening for the site and provide biodiversity and ecological habitats for a range of local bird and mammal species as well as removing CO2 from the air and converting it to oxygen. To date, 82,000 trees and shrubs have been planted, together with areas of grassland and wildflower zones.
In addition, our Poniel site benefits from a further planning permission to develop 1.24 million sq ft of industrial premises.
