The Glasgow Distillery is a great example of a rediscovered distillery with a point to prove. The first single malt whisky distillery in Glasgow for over 100 years, since its re-opening it has been achieving great success across the board with a number of single malts, as well as vodkas, rums, and more.
You may know Glasgow Distillery without being familiar with the signature 1770 single malt whisky range. It also produces Makar Gin, Banditti Club Spiced Rum, Malt Riot Blended Malt Scotch Whisky and G52 Botanical Vodka. The distillery is in the centre of Glasgow, and believes that its expressions testifies to Glasgow’s ‘no-nonsense’ identity.
It keep its whisky natural. It doesn’t add colouring to its single malt scotch whiskies and it doesn’t chill filter.
Glasgow Distillery’s inaugural release back in 2018 was of only 5000 bottles and sold out via ballot instantly.
Its five unique copper pot stills are christened: 'Annie', 'Mhairi' and 'Tara' - after family members of the three founders - and the others are 'Margaret' and 'Frances', named after two of Glasgow’s most beloved artists (and sisters), Margaret and Frances MacDonald.
The Glasgow Distillery is one of Scotland’s first licensed distillers, founded in Dundashill in 1770. It remained active until its closure at the start of the 20th century. Redemption was on the cards, and in 2014 The Glasgow Distillery Company re-opened. In doing so, it became the first single malt whisky distillery in Glasgow for over 100 years. The distillery is not open for tours. In our eyes, is can claim its right to be Glaswegian in nature. Designed on being the best there can be without fuss or pomp, these expressions are the sign of a brand that is on the path to success.
