£10.5m distillery lifts spirits in Glasgow
August 16 2016
The Clydeside Distillery will see the B-listed building preserved to house an exhibition and visitor centre alongside a new build glass fronted extension exposing the innards of the distillery itself to the Clyde.
AD Rattray proprietor AD Rattray said: “The city was once home to many whisky distilleries, and we think The Clydeside Distillery will put Glasgow right back on the Scotch whisky map.
“Few people know the historical significance of the iconic pump house building to the Scotch whisky trade.
“In years gone by, this building controlled the entry bridge into the Queens Dock ensuring Customs and Excise could keep a close eye on goods in and out, including whisky.”
The first whisky will be poured from autumn 2017.
