Malt Riot Blended Malt Scotch Whisky
About Malt Riot Blended Malt Scotch WhiskyWhen 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.
Malt Riot is a blended malt scotch whisky inspired by the malt tax riots of 1725, when the government wanted to impose a tax on Scotland's malted barley. The Scots, foreseeing an increase in the cost of whisky, beer and other daily essentials, rose up. Glasgow saw some of the fiercest protests, with malt stores barricaded and the excise men chased from the city. The protesters even destroyed the home of the local member of parliament, who voted in favor of the tax.
Malt Riot is a blend of handpicked single malts from across Scotland with the distillery’s signature Glasgow 1770 single malt at its heart. This light and smooth whisky is bottled at 40% ABV with no age statement.

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.
