The Clydeside Distillery, has announced the launch of its inaugural single malt Scotch whisky expression.
Stobcross (46% ABV) which was produced using 100% Scottish barley and water from Loch Katrine, was matured in a combination of American and European oak casks for almost four years.

Named after an historic cross which once marked the route to Dumbarton Rock, Stobcross would later be the name given to a fine mansion built in the 1600s. Later becoming the prosperous weaving village of Anderston, the mansion was demolished in 1875 to make way for the Queen’s Dock – at one time the epicentre of Glasgow’s global import and export trade.
Today, in the Dock’s former Pumphouse, built in 1877, that spirit of innovation continues with the combination of experience, passion and skill to create The Clydeside Distillery’s first release.
Owned by Morrison Glasgow Distillers Ltd, The Clydeside Distillery’s Chairman, Tim Morrison, is the great grandson of John Morrison who originally built The Queen’s Dock in the 1870s.
Stobcross, is said to deliver floral notes with fresh sweetness and tropical tones on the nose. Followed by notes of orchard fruits and a hint of white pepper on the palate.
Commenting on the launch, Andrew Morrison, Commercial Director at Morrison Glasgow Distillers, said: “Stobcross pays tribute to Glasgow’s industrial heritage and the spirit of innovation which forged its position on the global stage. Our whisky has been lying patiently waiting for almost four years. This precious time, along with our distiller’s skills and craftsmanship, has created something truly special. We’re incredibly proud to launch our very first Single Malt.”
Stobcross, is now available from the distillery shop and website, for a RRP of £45.00.
