Plans to convert premises in a historic Aberdeen arch into an artisan gin distillery have been given the go ahead.
An application was lodged with Aberdeen City Council earlier this year to convert one of the vacant C-listed arches on Palmerston Road into a site for gin production.
A previous application was submitted on behalf of the applicants by Douglas Architecture in October to convert a different arch.
However, the applicants were unable to occupy those premises for a “variety of circumstances” according to a report by city planners, and they submitted a second application for an alternative site.
In their report, planners said the proposals, which they approved unconditionally, would bring an “appropriate use” to the area.
It added: “The proposed frontage design is sensitive to the fabric and integrity of the listed building.
“Although no dedicated parking is provided it is accepted that most users of the gin distillery would walk to the site.
“Otherwise, the location is said to be well located in terms of sustainable transport, with on-street parking also available in the area.”
There are also plans to give visitors tours of the facility, which would include the option of tasting sessions.
The distillery would have opening hours of 10am to 10pm with visitor numbers limited to a maximum of 12 people at any one time.
Visitor events would occur no more than three times per day during late afternoon/early evening on Wednesday through to Saturday.
The site, which dates back to 1854, was previously used as a warehouse/distribution unit but is currently vacant.
