Already in 1770 there was a distillery at the current location of the Glasgow distillery, called Dundashill, which was then one of the first licensed whisky distilleries. In 2014, Liam Hughes, Mike Hayward and Ian McDougall decided to revive this piece of history and founded the Glasgow Destillery. It is now one of the few urban distilleries in Scotland dedicated to whisky production. With their now four pot stills, they currently produce around 440,000 liters of alcohol a year.

The Glasgow Distillery proves that it is sustainably successful in burning a new whisky chapter in the history of its home city, among other things with varied small-batch bottlings. The 1770 Glasgow 2018/2022 – Red Wine & Ruby Port Cask Finish is the Glaswegians’ most experimental release to date: for the first time, two spirit styles have been combined, each of which has undergone two different maturation processes.
Peated single malt matured in virgin oak casks and received a finish in Bordeaux red wine casks, while triple-distilled single malt matured in first fill bourbon casks and was refined in Ruby Port casks. From a total of six casks, which the urban distillers blended together at the end of 2022, 1,925 bottles were bottled at 57.5% vol. without cold filtration and in natural colour.
