Plans to convert a historic building into an artisan gin distillery have been given approval.
The application to convert one of the C-listed Arches on Palmerston Road was first submitted to Aberdeen City Council in October.
The proposals will see the space, which has lain vacant since 2016, turned into a site for gin production.
There are also plans to provide tours of the facility for visitors, which would include the option of tasting sessions.
The application was approved without conditions by Aberdeen City Council yesterday.
It was made on behalf of the applicants by Douglas Architecture Ltd.
A report approving the plans addressed the positive impact the distillery could have upon other businesses in the area.
It said: “The proposed gin distillery (which would incorporate a mixture of uses) is accepted as having no impact on the residential amenity of the surrounding area.
“It could also be considered that the wider industrial area could become more attractive to new businesses as a result of this additional facility.
“The alterations to the listed building are also considered to be acceptable; with the proposal having no impact on the character and appearance of the property.
“The proposal is therefore considered to accord with the relevant policies of the Aberdeen Local Development Plan, and there are no material planning considerations that would warrant refusal of consent.”
The report added: “The proposed change of use and alteration of this C-listed building would bring an appropriate use to the area.
“The proposed frontage design is sensitive to the fabric and integrity of the listed building.”
Architect Steve Douglas, who is behind the project’s design, previously stated that other options had been explored for the distillery’s location but it had been concluded that the Arches would provide the ideal location.
