An exciting and innovative Scottish distillery is set to touch down in Australia this year as it partners with Jonathan Paige International Group.

The Glasgow Distillery Company has captured the attention of Scotch Whisky fans across the world and is fast building a prestigious reputation as a contemporary distiller of premium spirits, including single malt scotch.

In 2020, the distillery picked up multiple accolades at the Scottish Whisky Awards, including the title of ‘Scottish Whisky Distillery of the Year’. They were also included in the annual round up of Scotch Whisky Brands to watch in 2021’ by industry publication, The Spirits Business.

The story began in 2014, the year Glasgow Distillery was founded and became the first Single Malt Whisky Distillery in the city of Glasgow for over 100 years. The Glasgow Distillery describe themselves as ‘Contemporary Urban Distillers’ and are proud to be re-establishing the metropolitan Scotch Malt Whisky tradition with an inclusive and forward-thinking approach to the whisky category.

The distillery’s Glasgow 1770 Single Malt Scotch Whisky Signature Range combines the finest Scottish barley, the exceptionally pure water of nearby Loch Katrine and the highest quality casks from all over the world to create a brilliantly fruity and complex spirit. Always non-chill filtered and only ever natural in colour, the Glasgow 1770 Signature Range consists of three distinctive single malts: The Original, Peated Rich & Smoky and Triple Distilled.

The distillery produces a broad range of other award-winning spirits, including blended malt Scotch whisky, vodka, gin and rum.

Malt Riot Blended Malt Scotch Whisky  is a selected blend of handpicked single malts from across Scotland, with the distillery’s Glasgow 1770 Single Malt sitting proudly at the heart of the spirit.

A light and smooth whisky with notes of sweet vanilla, toffee apples and dried spice with a long, warming finish, Malt Riot is ‘Made For Mixing’ and pairs perfectly with ginger ale over ice or as the central ingredient in a refreshing whisky sour. The exciting new blended malt whisky recently picked up the award of Scotland’s ‘Best Blended Malt Whisky under 12 years old’ at the 2020 Scottish Whisky Awards.

The distillery’s Glasgow 1770 Single Malt, Malt Riot Blended Malt and G52 Botanical Vodka are already available in Asia and Europe and are now set to launch in Australia through Jonathan Paige International Group.

Sean Ekanayake, Managing Director at Jonathan Paige International Group commented, we are thrilled to be working with such an innovative and exciting distillery with a unique portfolio of multi award-winning spirit brands, and look forward to successful brand launches through our major retailers and on trade partners.
