Glasgow Distillery launches new 1770 Small Batch Series

Glasgow 1770 Cognac Cask Finish (56% ABV) is a peated single malt Scotch whisky, which was initially laid down to mature in American oak casks in 2018, before being finished in French Cognac casks for over 12 months.

Glasgow 1770 Tequila Cask Finish (55% ABV) is an unpeated single cask, single malt Scotch whisky, which was initially laid down to mature in first-fill ex-bourbon barrel in 2018, before being finished in an ex-Tequila cask for over 12 months.

Demonstrating the collaboration that lies at the heart of The Glasgow Distillery’s craft and that has been influential in the creation of this new Small Batch Series, each bottle features the signature of the member of the whisky making team that has led on each particular project, showcasing The Glasgow Distillery’s non-traditional approach to the ‘master blender’ role, instead opting to collaborate on the whisky creation process as a team.
Commenting on the launch, Mike Hayward, Co-Founder of The Glasgow Distillery, said: “The Small Batch Series is a premium range of whiskies we’re looking to introduce to the global marketplace. It will be an ongoing series of hand selected batched releases of single malts which will give our customers insight into the cask trials we run at the distillery and into the great whiskies we’re trying every day. The Cognac Cask Finish and Tequila Cask Finish are just the beginning of what will be an experimental range that reflects our ethos of exploration and innovation.”
Glasgow 1770 Cognac Cask Finish (limited to 882 bottles) and Tequila Cask Finish (limited to 295 bottles) are now available from the distillery website and specialist retailers, for a RRP of £59.00 each.
