Discover the Whisky Wonderland: ORMA Distillery Embraces Swiss Heritage and Superior Technology
Since 2010, friends Rinaldo Willy and Pascal Mittner have embarked on a mission to make Switzerland a renowned whisky nation. Their whisky, “ORMA,” has garnered multiple international awards, showcasing its exceptional quality. Rooted in the canton of Graubünden, the name “ORMA” reflects the distillery’s essence, as it means “soul” in Rhaeto-Romanic.
Sensational Location and Unmatched Experience
Nestled in the heart of Switzerland, surrounded by the breathtaking Bernina massif and the Corvatsch glacier, ORMA Distillery provides a captivating experience for all visitors. Overlooking the picturesque lake landscape of the Upper Engadin, the distillery promises an unforgettable journey for the senses.
Top-notch Windows with a View
To ensure utmost comfort and protection against the mountain’s extreme weather conditions, triple glazing with thermal insulating glass MGTherm Öko Star from MGT Mayer Glastechnik adorns the windows of ORMA Distillery. This high-quality insulating glass offers exceptional thermal insulation, energy efficiency, and aesthetics.
Leading-edge Warm Edge Spacer Bars
The Öko Star insulating glass units feature SWISSPACER’s high-tech warm edge spacer bars, including the impressive SWISSPACER Ultimate. Renowned for its outstanding performance and elegant matte surface, the Ultimate minimizes cold bridges on the glass edge and significantly reduces condensation risks. Its exceptional stability ensures parallelism in the frame, and the foil guarantees prolonged durability.
Mastering the Challenge
Creating the window elements for ORMA Distillery presented unique challenges. Overcoming the limitations of the mountainous site at an altitude of over 3,000 meters, MGT Mayer Glastechnik successfully delivered the window elements via helicopter. The largest window, measuring more than ten square meters, demonstrated MGT Mayer’s expertise in handling large sizes. To withstand the climate conditions during transport, a pressure equalization valve was installed and securely sealed on-site.
Exquisite Corner Design
With meticulous attention to detail, MGT Mayer employed ultrasonically welded frame corners, ensuring a seamless and visually appealing design. This precise construction optimizes load transfer in the insulating glass units of the ORMA distillery.
