A classic London Dry Spirit with warm and rich notes of juniper and rosemary up front and bright citrus notes back stage.

The original Glasgow Distillery Company operated from 1770 through about 1902, falling to the great Whisky recession that saw many a distillery shutter their doors. The current iteration was founded in 2012 by Liam Hughes, Ian McDougall, and Mike Hayward with production beginning in 2014. They have expanded to produce a wide range of Spirits from Single Malts to Gin and everything in between. And they recently received financing to expand production even further and bring their products to Asia and North America.

Makar is the name of Glasgow Distillery’s Gin brand of which there are five. Makar Original Dry Gin is the core Spirit of their range and — we are told — it is the first Gin to be distilled in Glasgow. It’s crafted in the traditional London Dry style and supported by seen botanicals — juniper, of course, followed by angelica root, licorice, coriander, lemon zest, black peppercorn, cassia (cinnamon), and a dash of rosemary to compliment the juniper. Each of the five stills at Glasgow Distillery is named, and this Gin drips lovingly from the coils of Annie before being bottled at 43% ABV.

Smartass Corner:
The name "Makar" is taken from the old Scot’s Gaelic word for "poet" or "bard" — a "maker."

The finish is clean and drying with a lingering note of lemon pepper.
