An innovative distillery company in Glasgow has announced the second release of its first ever single malt whisky as well as unveiling plans for two forthcoming expressions. 

The Glasgow Distillery Company has stated that the 2019 release of their 1770 Single Malt Scotch Whisky, which sold out entirely in its first run, is now available to pre-order via their distillery website.

The distillery has also revealed the launch of two new expressions: 1770 Peated and 1770 Triple Distilled.

Together, these three new expressions will collectively form their Signature Range.

Matured in first fill ex-bourbon casks, finished in virgin oak and non-chill filtered; 1770 Single Malt is described as “smooth, fruity and complex” and highlighted by the distillery team as a single malt of “sublime quality”.

With the 2019 Release now available to order with shipping in April, the first Peated expression will be available in late 2019 and the Triple Distilled in early 2020.

With the launch of 1770, the GDC, the makers of the popular Makar Gin, became the first independent distillery to create single malt in the city since 1902.

Liam Hughes, CEO and co-founder of The Glasgow Distillery Company, said: “We were very humbled by the demand generated from our inaugural release. The ballot for Release No.1. was heavily oversubscribed, so we are delighted to be able to bring the 2019 Release to the market.

“It’s very exciting to finally reveal the news of our forthcoming Peated and Triple Distilled expressions.

“Innovation is very important to us, and the announcement of the 1770 Signature Range is no different. We’re proud to be one of a select few distilleries in Scotland to have three different styles of single malt as part of their core whisky offering.

“Individually unique and collectively brilliant, the full range of 1770 Whisky will provide consumers with an understanding of what we are about at Glasgow Distillery – creating handcrafted premium products to enjoy.

“We would like to encourage anyone interested in these releases to follow us on social media, @1770Whisky, where we will be revealing the latest product news and providing opportunities to secure exclusive access to new releases.”
