A whisky distillery steeped in the heart of Glasgow’s distillery industry is celebrating after achieving a prestigious Quality Assurance award from VisitScotland.
The Clydeside Distillery, situated in the pumphouse building which once controlled entry into the Glasgow Queen’s Dock, has secured a five-star rating from the national tourism organisation.
The grading highlights businesses within the VisitScotland Quality Assurance Scheme who continue to exceed customers’ expectations on an on-going basis whilst taking an innovative approach to customer care.
Opened in 2017, owner Tim Morrison helped to fulfil the ambitions of reviving distilling in Glasgow in honour of his great-grandfather restoring the dock that he had built in the 19th century.
The distillery offers a range of bespoke tours and tastings, allowing people to dive deep into the fascinating story of the attraction before sampling some of Scotland’s finest drams with the help of an expert guide to recommend the perfect whisky to match food choices or preferences.
They were praised for the excellent high-quality produce used in the making of the dishes featured on the café’s menu with much of the produce used being Scottish or locally sourced.
The attraction offers guests to try the Taste of Scotland Platter which is carefully chosen to showcase Scotland’s regional speciailties.
