Distilling comes back to Glasgow with a rich, fresh, and fruit-forward Single Malt in the Lowland style.

The Glasgow Distillery is both old and new. There was a distillery by that name way back in the day — 1770, that is. But wars, depressions, Prohibition, and other misfortunes led to its disappearing form history. But in 2014 the founding partners — Liam Hughes, Mike Hayward and Ian McDougall — reopened a new version of the historic distillery in the heart of Glasgow. They installed two new copper stills named Tara and Mhairi and set to work making Single Malt in the Dundashill section of Glasgow. Their first releases came out in 2019 to superlative reviews.

Glasgow 1770 The Original is THE foundational dram that they are building their lineup and reputation on in their signature "Fresh and Fruity" style. It made from 100% Scottish barley and water from the nearby Loch Katrine. It aged first in ex-Bourbon casks and then finished in virgin oak. This classic Lowland Spirit is then bottled without chill-filtration as an absolutely perfect 46% ABV. And even though it’s just been out for a year, this gorgeous dram has a handful of Gold and Silver Medals from major competitions.

Banana, raspberry, jelly beans

If we align Flaviar’s rating system to that of the Michelin guide, three stars is not bad. And indeed this is a decent dram. Enjoyable even to folks like me who swear by whiskies from Islay.

If you’re willing to put aside your preconceptions of what a whisky should taste like - and if you enjoy munching on jelly beans - this might just be the liqour for you.

More of a cocktail and less of a whisky, this Glasgow 1770 fruity combines banana, raspberries, and sweets in an original, new experience. Props to the distillery for its bravery - let’s continue to push the envelope.
