Glasgow’s First Peated Whisky Makes its Debut
August 21, 2019
We are delighted to announce the launch of our 1770 Glasgow Single Malt Scotch Whisky, Peated Release No.1.
1770 Peated is a rich and smoky addition to the 1770 Single Malt family and the first of its kind from the city of Glasgow. Our inaugural smoky whisky will sit alongside the Original 1770 and will soon be joined by the arrival of the Triple Distilled release in early 2020. Together, these three expressions will collectively form the 1770 Signature Range.
Crafted by smoking the finest barley with aromatic heather-rich peat from the Scottish Highlands, 1770 Peated combines the exceptionally pure water of Loch Katrine and has been carefully hand-crafted in our two unique copper pot stills, Tara and Mhairi.
Matured in first fill ex-sherry casks and finished in virgin oak, 1770 Peated is a sublime and sophisticated smoky single malt, with hints of flamed orange zestand rich caramel toffee leading to various dark earthy fruits. The finish is long and smooth with lingering notes of macadamia and spice.
1770 Peated is now available to pre-order here for £49, with shipping expected in late September. Those who pre-order will secure a luxury limited edition ‘Release No.1’ gift box with their purchase.
The announcement of 1770 Peated comes on the back of our Original 1770 winning four gold medals at four of the world’s most prestigious spirits competitions: The San Francisco World Spirits Competition, The International Spirits Challenge, The Scotch Whisky Masters and The International Whisky Competition. We have also reached the final stages across four categories at the inaugural Scottish Whisky Awards, due to take place on the 5thof September.
Last week, we revealed the arrival of two new whisky stills which have been named in honour of two of the city’s great female artists, Margaret and Frances MacDonald. The addition of these new stills will boost our production capabilities to approximately 440,000 litres per year – the equivalent of more than one million bottles of our 1770 whisky.
