Premier Technical Services Group Ltd (PTSG) is to provide specialist services at the new Johnny Walker Experience building in Edinburgh.
Authority was granted by the City of Edinburgh Council Planning Committee in May 2019 for the multi-million-pound sensory whiskey experience. Located on the capital’s Princes Street, the building was previously occupied by House of Fraser. Engineers from PTSG Electrical Services Ltd will install a lightning protection system at the building.
The experience centre will include room for a flexible events space for staging music, theatre and arts; a rooftop bar with views of Edinburgh Castle; and a street-level whisky store inspired by the new Johnnie Walker flagship shop in Madrid. It is part of Diageo’s £150 million investment in Scotch whisky tourism, which includes the upgrade of the company’s 12 distillery visitor centres across Scotland.
