The new distillery will be running tours this year, offering visitors a wide ranging experience, including the history of rum production and a cocktail master class. Opening the distillery means Wester Spirit Co has been able to increase their production capacity from 250 to 6000 bottles per month.
Wester Spirit Co co-founder, Zander Macgregor, said: “After working tirelessly to turn the original, blank-canvas industrial unit into a fully functioning, innovative rum distillery in the heart of Glasgow’s West End, this gives us the opportunity to spread the news of, and our passion for, Scottish rum on a bigger scale. We have experienced such tremendous growth since inception in 2017, we’re excited to begin collaborating and experimenting with other brands to grow our product range and develop our ampersand concept in the months that follow. The Limited Edition Batch 001 bottles are unique and numbered, sealed with a wax top, to mark the first time rum is flowing in Glasgow in over 300 years.”
