Baker-Rullman Mfg., Inc., located in Watertown, WI, a manufacturer of corrugated steel storage bins, hoppers, steel structure and triple-pass rotary drum dryers has announced that they have supplied two new, low-emission, natural gas burners to Chivas Borothers in Glasgow, Scotland, where the Strathclyde distillery produces the grain whiskey for all of the Scotch Whiskies in the Chivas Brothers portfolio. This distillery currently operates two of Baker-Rullman’s all stainless steel 90-30 rotary drum dryer systems.
Chivas has been a customer or Baker-Rullman since 1976 and uses the Baker-Rullman rotary technology to re-purpose spent grains from the distilling process into a coproduct called distillers dark grains. The end result is then sold for use as an animal feed.
“We have a lot of industry experience when it comes to the manufacture of spirits and our Triple-Pass technology was a perfect fit,” said Baker-Rullman President, David Schroeder. “Because of Chivas Brothers being a such a well organized operation and our experience working in Great Britain, the project went very smoothly.”
Based in Scotland, Chivas Brothers, owned by Pernod Ricard since 2000, was first established in 1801 in Aberdeen, Scotland and are makers of Chivas Regal and Ballantine’s Scotch Whiskey.
