Introducing Glasgow 1770 Red Wine & Ruby Port Cask Finish

Glasgow 1770 Red Wine & Ruby Port Cask Finish

Showcasing our commitment to flavour experimentation, we're delighted to introduce our latest release, a new limited edition expression that marries together two types of whisky production styles with two different cask finishes.

Glasgow 1770 Single Malt Scotch Whisky Small Batch Series Red Wine & Ruby Port Cask Finish is made up of three peated whisky casks that have been matured in virgin oak with a finish in Bordeaux red wine casks and three triple distilled whisky casks that spent time in first fill ex-bourbon before a finish in ruby port casks. All were laid down in early 2018 and bottled in late 2022.

This is the first time that we have combined different spirit production styles with different cask finishes, making Red Wine & Ruby Port Cask Finish our most experimental whisky release yet. 


Glasgow 1770 Red Wine & Ruby Port Cask Finish
70cl  |  57.5%  |  £59  |  1925 Bottles

Married together in equal parts, our smoky peated and our smooth triple distilled whisky finished in Bordeaux red wine casks and ruby port casks respectively. The peated whisky element offers a crisp, fruity and smoky experience while the triple distilled element contributes a lighter and smoother style with notes of summer berries and bright spice. Together, they harmoniously combine and balance beautifully, jointly offering notes of red berries and dark fruits on the nose, toasted almonds and tobacco on the palate and a long and spicy finish with hints of pink peppercorns.

Tasting notes:

“The foundation of our Small Batch Series has always been about pushing the boundaries of flavour in whisky making and our Glasgow 1770 Red Wine and Ruby Port Cask Finish takes this to the next level, marking our first foray into combining two distinct spirit styles with two distinct maturation processes."

- Mike Hayward, Founder.
