Whisky and Distilleries

Whisky is a translation of the Gaelic 'uisge', meaning ‘water of life’.

Whisky is Scotland’s national drink and is renowned and celebrated globally. So there really is no where better to learn more about how whisky is distilled and sample a dram than when you are visiting Scotland.

In Glasgow you can sample whisky from all around Scotland at some great traditional bars and pubs. Must-visits include The Pot Still, The Bon Accord, The Ben Nevis and The Lismore Bar, where friendly locals and staff will help you navigate their huge selection of whisky on offer. Read more about the top whisky bars in Glasgow. Or you can take a guided tour with Once Upon A Whisky Tours who can take you on a journey through some of the best 'off the beaten track' bars available in Glasgow. You'll get to visit quirky venues with great food and whisky (of course) as well as amazing stories to tell.

After sampling a dram in the city, why not add a visit to a distillery to your trip to find out how the 'water of life' is created? There are more than 100 distilleries in Scotland and they can be found across five whisky producing regions – Lowland, Highland, Islay, Campbeltown and Speyside – which are all accessible from Glasgow.
