This latest release, which is the first from the distillery to feature two spirit styles that have undergone two maturation styles, is said to deliver notes of red berries and dark fruits on the nose, followed by notes of toasted almonds, tobacco leaf and pink peppercorns on the palate.

Commenting on the launch, Mike Hayward, Founder of The Glasgow Distillery, said: “The foundation of our Small Batch Series has always been about pushing the boundaries of flavour profiles in whisky and our Glasgow 1770 Red Wine and Ruby Port Cask Finish takes this to the next level, marking our first foray into combining two distinct spirit styles with two distinct maturation processes."

Mike, went onto say: “The response to previous limited runs in our Small Batch Series has been great, so we’ve increased the availability for this release to make it more accessible to our customers around the world.”

Limited to 1,925 bottles, Glasgow 1770 Red Wine and Ruby Port Cask Finish, is now available from the Glasgow Distillery website and specialist retailers, for a RRP of £59.00.
