Scotland has a rich history with spirits — so much so that there's an entire classification of whisky named after the country — but the Glasgow Distillery Company is looking to familiarize local consumers with a less common variant of Scottish spirit. The company has recently opened tours of one of its oldest gin distilleries, giving consumers the opportunity to experience the history of Scottish distilling for themselves.
The gin tour is a long one, as it gives those who attend the chance to see two different locations. The day starts at Wellpark Brewery, a 450 year old brew house, before moving on to the Glasgow Distillery Company's own premises. On the tour, attendees will get to sample both Tennent beer and Makar gin.
