Bently Heritage Distillery
We divided the spirit production between the two restored buildings, organizing the Creamery layout to reflect how ingredients move through the production line, from farm to bar.
The Mill meanwhile acts as the heart of the visitor experience. After orienting themselves with the space and story, guests can enjoy a tasting with a view over the town and the whiskey production below.
Our respectful design preserves many elements of the original structures—including the historic facades—having prioritized existing materials, sustainability and heritage at every turn. It even rejuvenates the town of Minden, turning the surrounding area into a native habitat and public park, and upgrading local paths and highway crossings.
The result is a unique destination for visitors and a prized asset for the community.
