DBR Staff Writer Published 28 February 2018

The Glasgow Distillery Company has unveiled the first expression in its limited-edition Single Batch Spirit Series.

Double Cherry Gin is the initial release in the series. It is said to have been aged in cherry wood casks for about 10 weeks and then macerated in fresh cherries until ready to drink.

The experimental spirits range will be limited to 1,000 bottles, which will be hand filled and hand labelled by the distillery. 

Double Cherry Gin is available exclusively from the distillery at a price of £25.

Glasgow Distillery brand and marketing director Mike Hayward said: “These products will allow consumers to have an insight into our workings here at the distillery.

"We are constantly coming up with new ideas for products, and new ways to improve and alter our existing products.

“The Single Batch Series takes our experiments, bottles our ideas and gives it to the public for a chance to have their say on what they like and what they don’t.”

The company plans to release two or three Single Batch Spirit expressions per year and it claims that each expression will be different to the last.
