Glasgow Distillery Co debuts 700ml bottlesBy Nicola Carruthers
The Glasgow Distillery Co has moved to a larger bottle size for its 1770 Scotch range, using less glass than the original 500ml format.
The new 700ml bottle format will be available across 1770’s Signature range of core single malts.
The Scotch whisky producer said the move to a larger bottle size comes at no additional cost for its customers, following an increase in production and international growth.
Liam Hughes, co-founder and CEO of The Glasgow Distillery Co, said: “As Glasgow springs back to her vibrant self, following a difficult couple of years, at The Glasgow Distillery we wanted to come back bigger too, with a larger bottle allowing us to expand our international exports and open up exciting new markets.
“The new packaging is already proving a positive move for us as we prepare to ship orders of our single malt to the US; China; Singapore and a new distribution partner in France for the first time.
“From day one, our mission was to produce a whisky range that is led by flavour and quality, and this new bottle size is another step on that journey.
“Since our first release in 2018 we have been steadily increasing production across our Glasgow 1770 Signature Range and now we’re thrilled to reveal this bigger bottle with a more environmentally friendly design.”
The products are available to purchase via the distillery’s website, priced at RRP £49 (US$64).
The range will subsequently be available at specialist retailers across the UK, then France, Germany, Denmark, Australia, China, South East Asia and the US. It will be rolled out to further export markets later in 2022.
In February, the Scotch producer created an exclusive 1770 single malt in partnership with Glasgow’s Whisky Festival.
