The Glasgow Distillery releases first cask strength editions


The Glasgow Distillery has released cask strength editions of two of its most popular single malts, Glasgow 1770 Peated Cask Strength Batch 01 and Glasgow 1770 The Original Cask Strength Batch 01, in the first of what will be an ongoing series of batched cask strength releases.

First released in 2018, Glasgow 1770 The Original is the inaugural and most highly decorated expression, winning a series of awards in 2023 including Gold at the International Spirits Challenge, and the highest merit of Master at the Spirits Business Scotch Whisky Masters.

Glasgow 1770 Peated was first released in 2019 and has been crowned ‘Best Lowland Single Malt’ in 2020, 2021 and 2022 at the International Whisky Competition.

Mike Hayward, co-founder of The Glasgow Distillery, has said, “Every whisky we sample at the distillery is initially tasted at cask strength before dilution. We wanted to give customers the chance to experience amplified versions of two of our signature styles of spirit and an insight into what we get to taste day-to-day.”

Glasgow 1770 Peated Cask Strength Batch 01 has been bottled at 60.8% with 1000 bottles available. Glasgow 1770 The Original Cask Strength Batch 01 is available at 61.3% with a more limited run of 750 bottles.

Both releases are available on The Glasgow Distillery website and in specialist retailers across the UK, with an RRP of £64 for The Original Cask Strength and £66 for Peated Cask Strength.
