The Pot Still in Glasgow has been announced as a finalist for the Wee Dram Whisky Bar of the Year prize at the 2014 DRAM Scottish Licensed Trade Awards, which take place at The Grand Central Hotel in Glasgow on Monday July 7th.

The Wee Dram Whisky Bar of the Year award seeks to recognise licensees that got to extraordinary lengths to promote Scotch whisky within their own establishment. An excellent range of whisky on the back bar is a necessity and staff should be well trained and enthusiastic when it comes to recommending whisky to their customers. A good, hearty Scottish welcome is also considered a must.

The Pot Still is a Glasgow institution, with owner Frank Murphy rejuvenating the venue since taking over in 2011. The bar now boasts 630 whiskies on its back bar, and tutored, private whisky tastings are also available for customers and Frank’s sister Geraldine hosts the UK’s only ladies-only whisky club from the bar. The Murphys’ passion for whisky is infectious, and DRAM’s judges were extremely impressed with The Pot Still’s dedication to Scotland’s national drink.

The awards, dubbed the licensed trade ‘Oscars,’ are organised by licensed trade magazine, DRAM. Now in their 19th year, they are the longest-established awards of their kind in Scotland, recognising excellence in Scotland’s bar, restaurant and hospitality industries.
