New distillery receives its 5000th visitor

Glasgow’s Clydeside Distillery continues to be in good spirits after welcoming its 5000th visitor following a busy Easter period.

Over the two-week Easter holidays running until 13 April, the Clydeside Distillery welcomed over 1,200 visitors to its visitor centre on the banks of the River Clyde. The busy Easter period helped boost overall visitor numbers to over 5,000 since the attraction opened in November.

Whisky fans from all backgrounds, tastes and knowledge levels have taken full advantage of the state-of-the-art interactive whisky experience which brings Glasgow’s rich whisky heritage to life.

With City Sightseeing Glasgow installing a brand new stop for its open top bus tour outside the distillery just a few weeks ago, the team is now busy preparing for the start of its first summer season.

Bridgeen Mullen, visitor centre manager, said: ‘The Easter break was our first proper holiday period since Christmas and I have to commend the entire team on a sterling job. Footfall surpassed our expectations which we see as a fantastic sign of things to come.

‘The Clydeside Distillery is unique and offers locals and tourists alike a fantastic experience of Glasgow’s rich whisky heritage. Over the coming weeks we will begin to add more tour slots into our weekend schedules whilst continuing to offer our guests an experience they will never forget.

‘Summer is just around the corner and with industry trends predicting even more visitors to whisky distilleries in 2018, we are excited to work with our partners to reinforce Glasgow’s place on the whisky map.’

Distillery tours run every hour Monday to Friday and Sunday, and every half hour on Saturday.
