Clydeside Distillery, which opened its doors to the public last month and can be found on the banks of the river Clyde in Glasgow, has announced that distillery chairman, Tim Morrison, has helped fill the distillery's first casks with new-made spirit ready to be matured.
The first batch of spirit will rest for at least three years in American Bourbon oak casks until it can officially be called Scotch Whisky.
Located on the site formerly known as The Queen’s Dock – once known as the beating heart of Glasgow’s shipping industry - the distillery is set to revive single malt whisky distilling in the area for the first time in over 100 years.
Owned by Morrison Glasgow Distillers Ltd, The Clydeside Distillery’s Chairman Tim Morrison is the great grandson of John Morrison, who originally built The Queen’s Dock in 1877.
At the time of opening, commercial director Andrew Morrison said that they would be using traditional methods with modern technology to produce their spirits.
He said: "We are passionate about using traditional methods to produce our whisky, albeit with a bit of modern technology.
"We're combining this with the skills of our distillers to ensure we stay true to the techniques employed for hundreds of years.
"We want to welcome everyone, from Glasgow natives and Scottish whisky lovers to international whisky enthusiasts, tourists and those who are visiting the city.
"Glasgow has a long and special relationship with Scotch whisky and our visitor experience will bring this to life."
