Glasgow Distillery unveils third in Signature Range
Glasgow Distillery has today unveiled the third and final expression to complete its Signature Range.
Glasgow 1770 Single Malt Triple Distilled – Release No.1 follows the launch of the Glasgow 1770 Peated expression in 2019, and the distillery’s inaugural launch of Glasgow 1770 Original in 2018, which was an “instant sell out success”.
This release is the third and final iteration in the core range from the Distillery, before embarking on a selection of single cask and limited-edition releases which are currently in the pipeline.
Harnessing the incredibly pure water of Loch Katrine, the distillery’s natural water source, with a third distillation and maturation exclusively in virgin oak casks, the resulting spirit is described as “a smooth single malt whisky with deep complexity, character and warmth”.
On the nose aromas of rich sweet butterscotch toffee and dark cherries leads to hints of ripe pear and baked vanilla cheesecake on the palate, followed by spicy chocolate. The finish is long and clean, with lingering notes of rich honey and vanilla.
Liam Hughes, Co-Founder of The Glasgow Distillery Company said: “We are thrilled to celebrate the launch of our first Triple Distilled whisky. It has been a project of passion for everyone at the distillery and is truly a celebration of two of the essential elements in the whisky making process: the water and the wood.
“We’re incredibly fortunate that our natural water supply is from Loch Katrine, it gives such softness and purity to our whisky. We also have access to virgin oak casks of outstanding quality and have used these for the entire duration of this whisky’s maturation.
“The additional complexity and depth that this adds is exceptional and the marriage of these two elements, the water and the wood, is really apparent in this exciting new release which we are proud to add to the Glasgow 1770 Signature Range.
“It has always been our vision to create a core range of single malts that reflect differing production styles. Our vision was influenced by the original Glasgow Distillery, which was founded in 1770 and inspired the name for our range of single malts. After discovering that they produced unpeated, peated and triple distilled whisky some 150 years ago we set out to do the same for the modern whisky era.”
Non-chill filtered and natural in colour, Glasgow 1770 - Triple Distilled Release No.1 is a limited-edition whisky bottled at 46% ABV and is now available to purchase from the Glasgow Distillery website for £49.
