Glasgow Distillery: Online Whisky Tasting
We are delighted to announce our most recent partnership with The Glasgow Distillery Company.
Every Thursday, join us on an online whisky tasting hosted by Once Upon a Whisky from the distillery’s newly re-furbished Tasting Room. Each week, we will be tasting a wonderful set of 5 whiskies delivered directly to your door.
The city of Glasgow, apart from being a vibrant place full of culture, music and amazing food, is also one of the central hubs for the whisky industry in Scotland. Even though The Glasgow Distillery is a relatively new player, their whiskies have become a reference for quality and craftsmanship.
Celebrate Burns Night With Glasgow Distillery
On the dates of the 21st, 25th and 28th January, we will be celebrating one of the most traditional cultural events of the Scottish culture, Burns Night!
Burns Night is a special celebration that gathers family and friends around good food, poetry, and of course, a dram or two of the delicious amber nectar – Scotch whisky! It is a true celebration of the life and work of Robert Burns, the national poet of Scotland.
Book your tickets for any of the three aforementioned virtual tastings (21st, 25th & 28th January) and join us from the comfort of your own home as we guide you through five Glasgow Distillery Single Malt Scotch whiskies, recount some stories and facts regarding the artistic life of Robert Burns and toast to one of the most renowned Scottish personalities.
Even though this will be a Glasgow Distillery Single Malt Virtual Tasting featuring their Glasgow 1770 Single Malt Scotch Whisky range, we will also surprise you with a special Burns Night treat or two!

About the whiskies
Since 2014, The Glasgow Distillery Company has been focused on the production of high-quality spirits. Their product portfolio is absolutely brilliant and even though they are a young distillery, their whiskies are the best proof that younger whiskies can also be of outstanding quality, putting firmly to bed the old view of ‘the older the whisky is, the better quality it is.’
