Embracing the pioneering spirit of Scotland’s first licensed distillers, The Glasgow Distillery adopts its name from one of the city’s original distilleries. In 1770, The Glasgow Distillery was founded and remained active until consequent closure at the beginning of the 20th Century. In 2014 The Glasgow Distillery re-opened becoming the first Single Malt Whisky Distillery in Glasgow for over 100 years.
The distillery presents an impressive portfolio of spirits, including it’s award-winning Glasgow 1770 Single Malt Scotch Whisky, Makar Gin, Banditti Club Rum and G52 Botanical Vodka.
Glasgow 1770 Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Bringing the art of Glasgow distilled Single Malt Scotch Whisky back to the city.
Handcrafted in our special copper pot stills, Glasgow 1770 Single Malt Scotch Whiskies combine the finest Scottish barley and the exceptionally pure water of Loch Katrine to create the finest spirit.
Two expressions of award-winning whisky are currently available: The Original - 2019 Release and The Peated - Release No.1.
Makar Gin is a juniper-led, handcrafted small-batch Scottish gin of the highest quality. The name derives from the ancient Scots word for a ‘poet’ — a maker of verse; which embodies the craft and attention that The Glasgow Distillery’s team of distillers devote to each and every bottle.
5 expressions of this award-winning gin are available: The Original Dry, Old Tom, Oak Aged Gin, Mulberry Wood Aged Gin and Cherry Gin.
Banditti Club Rum
The Banditti Club were a company of bold rogues who would meet in Glasgow’s local public houses; sharing music, food and laughter late into the night…
Banditti Club Glasgow Spiced Rum is distilled from freshly pressed sugar cane juice on the island of Madeira. Matured at The Glasgow Distillery in virgin oak casks and spiced with a selection of fresh fruit and exotic spices. The result is a naturally fresh and satisfyingly spicy spirit, perfect for mixing with ginger beer – the way the original members of Glasgow’s Banditti Club would have enjoyed it.
G52 Botanical Vodka
G52 Botanical Vodka is handcrafted using a range of carefully considered botanicals in order to create a complex and sophisticated spirit, boasting 100% natural ingredients with no artificial flavours, sweeteners or colours.
The G52 Botanical Vodka range has been deliberately developed to explore multiple flavour profiles; catering to various palates and encouraging adventurous cocktail experimentation. Whilst G52 Fresh Citrus is perfect for mixing and creating refreshing cocktails, G52 Rich Coffee is perfect for creating luxurious and lavish cocktails.
