The very first Single Malt release from the return of Glasgow Distillery — alive with fruit-forward flavors.

The Glasgow Distillery Company is both old and new. There was a distillery by that name way back in the day — the 1800s, that is. But wars, depressions, prohibition, and other misfortunes led to it disappearing form history. But in 2014, the “founding partners” reopened a new version of the historic classic distillery in the heart of Glasgow. Their first releases are coming out just this year in 2019 to superlative reviews.

1770 Glasgow Single Malt Scotch Whisky 2019 Release is the very first release from this reborn distillery. And it has already collected an impressive amount of jewelry in the form of gold medals — including shiny gold medallions from the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, The International Spirits Challenge, The Scotch Whisky Masters, and the International Whisky Competition.

It gets is flavor from the Single Malt, the water from Lock Katrine, and double-wood aging — first in first-fill ex-Bourbon casks, then finishing in virgin white oak. And you can taste it all because it’s bottled at a perfect 46% ABV.

Smartass corner:
1770 was the year that the city of Glasgow was founded — which makes it a great name for the signature first release from Glasgow Distillery Company.

Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
