About Glasgow 1770 Whisky
When The Glasgow Distillery Company opened in 2014, it became the first single malt whisky distillery in Glasgow for over 100 years. Named after one of Glasgow’s original distilleries, which was founded at Dundashill in 1770 and closed at the beginning of the 20th century, The Glasgow Distillery Company embraces the pioneering spirit of Scotland’s first licensed distillers. The founders, Liam Hughes, Mike Hayward and Ian McDougall, are on a mission to bring single malt distilling back to the city, and hope that their venture marks the start of a whole new age of distilling in Glasgow. Committed to authenticity and quality, the distillery’s innovative and skilled team uses the finest ingredients, the best distilling equipment, and best casks from around the world to make a wide portfolio of handcrafted premium spirits. Their whisky, gin, rum and vodka are distilled in five copper pot stills, Annie, Mhairi, Tara, Margaret and Frances. Attention to detail and the superb craft that go into their products have already earned the company a number of awards from international spirits competitions.
Glasgow 1770 is the distillery’s signature range, which brought single malt whisky back to the city of Glasgow. The range consists of the original, peated and triple distilled expressions. The range’s name, 1770 – the year when the original Glasgow Distillery was founded, is a nod to the heritage of single malt distilling in Glasgow. The finest Scottish barley and the exceptionally pure water of Loch Katrine are combined to create the finest spirit. Glasgow 1770 whiskies are matured in the finest casks, and always non-chill filtered.
Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)
Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.
Dried dark fruits with tropical undertones on the nose are followed by hints of biscuit, oak and freshly cut grass. Sweet butterscotch and crème brulee char on the palate are accompanied by hints of freshly sliced pear, dried figs, dates and raisins, and notes of sweet almond, honey and creamy shortbread. The long finish has thickly spread orange marmalade, and nutmeg notes underpinned by complex woodiness and a slight spice.
