Distillery Life BrendanWednesday 26th July 2017
We set up Glasgow Distillery Company to create first class products and we couldn't do this without the passion, knowledge and dedication from our distilling team. Being the first gin and single malt whisky distillery Glasgow since 1902, our team of distillers continue to achieve our vision of producing premium quality spirits. In this Distillery Life series we go behind the scenes and give you a window into the distillery and our talented team.
