Glasgow 1770 Wins Gold

Today we’re raising a glass of Glasgow 1770 Peated Cask Strength in recognition of it having been awarded a Gold Medal at the Spirits Business’ Global Scotch Whisky Masters!

Glasgow 1770 Peated Cask Strength was awarded the Gold after a blind tasting and scoring by a panel of expert judges.

The judges enjoyed complex “rancio notes, sponge cake and caramelised walnuts”. “Impressively well-integrated alcohol,”. “This was superior due to its more natural expressive character, with bold but balanced wood influence.”

Glasgow 1770 Peated Cask Strength

Released towards the end of 2023, the first batch of this release was a marriage of three hogsheads that truly demonstrate the rich and smoky character that our customers expect from our peated style - these were presented at their natural cask strength of 60.8% ABV with 1000 bottles available.

Notes of rich BBQ sauce, tobacco leaf and opulent smoked Iberico ham marry with sticky poached plums, dried apricot and flamed orange zest for a truly stunning showcase of the Peated whisky we’re producing at The Glasgow Distillery.


Unfortunately, Batch 01 has now sold out. To be the first to know when Batch 02 will be available sign up for our newsletter here:
