Glasgow's whisky fans could soon be sailing down the Clyde dram in hand, as the ‘Murray McDavid’ whisky boat arrives in the city.

Moored next to the ‘The Tall Ship’ at Riverside, the 60ft traditional wooden boat ‘Murray McDavid’ has been rejuvenated for a new lease of life on the River Clyde.

Designed as a floating office for day to day business, the boat will also be taking guests on board for whisky tasting events throughout the year, introducing whisky lovers to Murray McDavid’s range of Scotch whisky.

During the summer months, the boat will also take sailing trips to the islands to take part in whisky festivals and cultural events.

Corporate events and tasting groups can also take advantage of the location in the heart of Glasgow, enjoying bespoke tastings and private bookings including one-to-one sessions with the bottling company’s Master Blender.
