Whisky runs through the city’s industrial heritage like the river clyde itself. which is why our gleaming new single malt scotch whisky distillery at the queen’s dock has a touch of the inevitable about it. From here at the Pumphouse, the heart of Clydeside today, Customs & Excise kept a watchful eye on exports of liquid gold. Turns out, our ancestor, John Morrison, began building this very Dock in 1863 while he was busy building half the city. One whole generation before our family discovered whisky. John also had a hand in raising Loch Katrine, whose pure soft water goes into making Clydeside Single Malt Whisky today. Our tours and tastings let you dive deep into The Clydeside Distillery experience for yourselves. Our expert tour guides share the fascinating Dockside story before you can sit down and sample our wonderful drams in our exclusive Blender’s Room. Whether you’re taking a tour or not, all visitors to the Clydeside can enjoy lunches and bites in our sumptuous Café. We relish in presenting all of Scotland’s bounty for you to enjoy. Our food is freshly prepared using locally sourced, seasonal ingredients and our menu is carefully chosen to showcase regional specialities.
When it comes to Scottish Whisky, there are many distilleries that are well known household names, but that doesn’t give them the right to call them themselves the best! Here at the Clydeside Distillery, they maybe a state of the art visitor attraction, distilling a few new whiskies, but this family is no stranger to the whisky world! For well over a hundred years, Stanley P Morrison became one of Glasgow’s most successful whisky brokers and this is just one of the many stories you’ll be told whilst visiting the Clydeside Distillery and whilst on the tour, your very experienced tour guide will be on hand to answer any questions you may have, no matter how obscure, I’m very confident, they’ll be able to answer it. The visitors centre is one of a kind, based in an old pump house and I’ve only ever seen one other business that have used such a property and that was a restaurant in south Wales. The staff are super friendly and give you just as premium an experience as their famous premium brands!- Top 100 Review
