This latest release from the Glasgow Distillery, is final iteration in its core range, before it embarks on an exciting selection of single cask and limited edition releases, which are currently in the pipeline.

Glasgow 1770 Single Malt Triple Distilled – Release No.1, follows on from the launch of the Glasgow 1770 Peated expression in 2019, and the distillery’s inaugrual launch of Glasgow 1770 Original in 2018.

Glasgow 1770 Single Malt Triple Distilled – Release No.1, is said to deliver notes of dark cherry, caramel toffee, roasted almonds, liquorice, vanilla and tea leaves on the nose. Followed by notes of ripe pear, baked vanilla cheesecake and spicy chocolate on the palate.

Commenting on the news, Liam Hughes, Co-Founder of The Glasgow Distillery Company said: “We are thrilled to celebrate the launch of our first Triple Distilled whisky. It has been a project of passion for everyone at the distillery and is truly a celebration of two of the essential elements in the whisky making process: the water and the wood.”

He went onto say: “We’re incredibly fortunate that our natural water supply is from Loch Katrine, it gives such softness and purity to our whisky. We also have access to virgin oak casks of outstanding quality and have used these for the entire duration of this whisky’s maturation. The additional complexity and depth that this adds is exceptional and the marriage of these two elements, the water and the wood, is really apparent in this exciting new release which we are proud to add to the Glasgow 1770 Signature Range.”

He concluded by saying: “It has always been our vision to create a core range of single malts that reflect differing production styles. Our  vision was influenced by the original Glasgow Distillery, which was founded in 1770 and inspired the name for our range of single malts. After discovering that they produced unpeated, peated and triple distilled whisky some 150 years ago we set out to do the same for the modern whisky era.”

Glasgow 1770 Single Malt Triple Distilled – Release No.1, is now available from the Glasgow Distillery website, for a RRP of £49.00.
