The Glasgow Distillery was the Scottish city’s first new independent single malt whisky distillery in over 100 years.

It launched its first gin in 2014, before filling its first whisky cask a year later. That first whisky was christened 'Glasgow 1770' after the date that the original Glasgow Distillery was founded.

To celebrate its latest release – the experimental Small Batch Series – we’re giving away a trio of their new single malt scotch whiskies.

Specially curated for spring, the Small Batch Series includes notes of orchard fruits and fresh citrus.

The Glasgow Distillery’s three new releases include its first bottlings using Calvados and Manzanilla Sherry casks, as well as revisiting Tequila cask maturation, this time with its triple distilled whisky.

Glasgow 1770 Calvados Cask Finish, Glasgow 1770 Manzanilla Sherry Cask and Glasgow 1770 Tequila Cask Finish are part of the distillery’s Small Batch Series - an ongoing set of bottlings that demonstrate the versatility of the three whisky making styles produced by the contemporary urban distillery with a wide range of new and intriguing cask maturations.

Mike Hayward, co-founder of The Glasgow Distillery, commented: “Glasgow 1770 Calvados Cask Finish marks our first venture into Calvados finishing, using a cask that had previously been used for maturing the traditional apple-based French brandy that is produced in the Normandy region of France, offering notes of fresh green apples, poached pears, and baked apple pie.

“Our previous bottling of double distilled spirit finished in a Tequila Cask was so popular that we decided to go one step further, finishing our lighter and more delicate triple distilled whisky style in a Tequila Cask.

“Finally, we have our first Manzanilla Sherry Cask matured single malt, a lusciously complex whisky with notes of saline smoke, tropical papaya, and rich plum.”

Each bottle retails for £59 and only available in a highly limited run. For your chance to win one bottle of each expression, answer the simple question below.
