We're here to help — please let us know if you require any special accommodations and we will do our best to meet your needs.
NB: Due to the worldwide pandemic (covid19), we have taken the very difficult decision to close the visitor experience from the 18th of March 2020 until further notice. No tours will be running during this time.
Your special tour starts as Alistair McDonald, our Distillery Manager, personally greets you. Following his illustrious career in the whisky industry, he’s brimming with facts and anecdotes – and you can trust his recommendations for the finest single malt whiskies around.
Your time with him will include these fantastic elements, in any order.
DISTILLERY MANAGER TOUR
Who better to show you around the workings of the distillery but the manager himself? Alistair will take you through the step-by-step process of handcrafting the distillation of the new make spirit – you’ll even taste our fresh new make spirit and compare it with our 6-month-old spirit. Meet our lively craftsmen as they use their traditional methods and time-honoured skills. Enjoy the spectacular view over the River Clyde from our gleaming contemporary Still House.
Alistair will guide you into our Blenders Room with magnificent views. He has personally selected 4 premium Single Malt Whiskies for this premium tasting experience, complemented by delicious canapés. You’ll also enjoy unique access to behind the scenes at the Distillery.
Wander around the Dockside Story in the self-guided part of this tour. Discover fascinating tales about the birth of the whisky industry and Glasgow’s history, featuring live footage and animation bringing history to life.
BRANDED WHISKY GLASSES
On parting, you will receive two large whisky glasses, branded The Clydeside Distillery, and a bottle of Clydeside New Make Spirit, personally signed by the Distillery Manager.
