Glasgow Gets First Rum Distillery in 300 Years
Wester Spirit Co. is set to open a new rum distillery in Glasgow’s Partick in November – the first for the city in over 300 years, say the company. Wester Spirit Company is the brainchild of Zander Macgregor and Allan Nairn, who are both based in Glasgow.
It has moved away from conventional copper stills in favor the multi-faceted future of stainless steel. The Still is equipped with fully programmable technology to increase the efficiency of the distilling process and has the option of manual control to allow changes to the smallest details in the flavor profile. According to the distillery, the Genio still will allow Wester Spirit Company to reproduce its recipe with “unrivaled accuracy”.
