Triple Delight for Glasgow DistilleryMonday 18th May 2020
We are delighted to unveil the third and final expression to complete the Glasgow 1770 Signature Range with the launch of Glasgow 1770 Single Malt Triple Distilled – Release No.1.
Triple Distilled Release No.1 follows the launch of the Glasgow 1770 Peated expression in 2019, and the inaugural launch of Glasgow 1770 Original in 2018, which was an instant sell out success.
Since then, the range has picked up an ever growing number of international whisky awards, including Gold Medals at The San Francisco World Spirits Competition; International Spirits Challenge, and Scotch Whisky Masters.
This eagerly anticipated release is the third and final iteration in the core range, before embarking on an exciting 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 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.
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 here for £49.

Upgrade to the Collector’s Edition at no additional cost to receive your bottle in the exclusive Collector’s Edition presentation box.
