Minden, NV

Bently Heritage Distillery adaptive reuse building will develop the Old Mill District, in the town of Minden, in Carson Valley, NV, into a state-of-the-art distillery for high grade Whisky, Vodka, Gin and Absinthe. The design intent is to convert the Old Mill District into a functional distillery, tourist and educational attraction with global sustainability recognition.

The distillery project consists of two buildings serving the production of spirits: the Mill building and the Creamery Building.  

The Mill Building will serve as the main production facility for fine whiskey. The structure was built in 1908 and consists of four, 24 feet in diameter and 50 feet high steel plate silos as well as a 45 feet high (3 stories + loft & low basement) unreinforced brick masonry structure with an approximate area of 14,700 SF. The interior of the brick structure is framed with heavy timber.

The silos will contain the distilling equipment for the production of fine whiskey. The first floor of the three distilling silos will be conjoined by removing portions of the skin of each silo. Distilling equipment will be arranged vertically throughout the silos to enable a gravity fed distilling process. The brick structure will contain the balance of the program elements including tasting room both private and public, and retail spaces. Portions of the existing floors will be removed to create multiple height spaces. 

The project is designed to a LEED Gold standard and accommodates natural ventilation, daylight harvesting, recycled water, radiant floors coupled with displacement ventilation in the public spaces. LED lighting throughout in addition to low flow water fixtures.
