Glasgow Distillery Co
The Glasgow Distillery Co was established in 2013 becoming the first distillery in the City of Glasgow for over 100 years. The craft of distillation is not however new to this part of Scotland. In 1770 Glasgow was a thriving hub for business and trade and it was then when the original Glasgow Distillery was established in Dundashills.
Records form that time shows that there were well over 150 "licenced" distilleries in Scotland with many more illicit ones. In 1825 the Glasgow Distillery Company took over the stills st Dundashills and for number of years ahead the distillery operated under different guises. In 1899 a number of stills were increased to expand production however following the great depression, prohibition and two world wars the distillery closed its doors for ever.
In 2011 the 'founding partners' envisaged an opportunity to build a brand new distillery in the heart of Glasgow with the idea to produce high quality malt whisky and premium gin. Today their first Glasgow gin is making its presence felt on the Scottish market and abroad.
