Character Goatson
A balanced, Blended Malt Whisky assembled from a range of Scotland’s Single Malts with Glasgows 1770 Single Malt at the heart of it all. 

The original Glasgow Distillery Company operated from 1770 through about 1902, falling to the great Whisky recession that saw many a distillery shutter their doors. The current iteration was founded in 2012 by Liam Hughes, Ian McDougall, and Mike Hayward with production beginning in 2014. They have expanded to produce a wide range of Spirits from Single Malts to Gin and everything in between. And they recently received financing to expand production even further and bring their products to Asia and North America.

Malt Riot Blended Malt Scotch Whisky is a combination of Single Malts collected from across Scotland, but Glasgow's own 1770 Single Malt forms the core of the blend. The result is a balanced and approachable dram with a sweet and zesty profile that reminds us of Christmas cake with a dash of applesauce.

Smartass Corner:
In 1725, the British government imposed a tax on malted barley. As you might imagine, this was a less-than-popular thing to do. The people revolted and the tax collectors were chased out of the city in an event now known as The Malt Riots.

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.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
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.
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
