The Glasgow Distillery Company, the first independent single malt distillery to open in the city since 1902, has once again sold out of one of its releases, namely their 1770 Single Malt: The Coopers’ Cask Release, after phenomenally high demand!
With only 403 individually numbered bottles available the The Coopers’ Cask Release was the result of a collaboration between The Glasgow Distillery and US based Kelvin Cooperage. It was launched in celebration of the ancient skill of coopering; the art of creating casks made from wooden staves bound by metal hoops.

Glasgow Distillery very kindly sent me a sample of this very special dram to try, together with a lovely tasting glass. (Thanks Glasgow Distillery!)
So, what did I think? Here are my tasting notes …
Tasting Notes – Glasgow 1770 Single Malt, The Coopers’ Cask (53.3%)
Nose: Very Creamy toffee, sweet vanilla, refreshing crisp, green apples fresh, orchard fruits.
Palate: Sweet, creamy toffee, vanilla and shades of mint.
Finish: A long finish of fiesty pepper culminating in a sweet dry ending.
Overall: A classy dram for sure! Lots going on flavour wise and the very reasonable price point gave plenty of bang for your buck. I won’t be forgetting this Whisky anytime soon!
