The Scottish Event Campus (SEC) has announced the opening of a fully functioning whisky distillery, on site on the banks of the River Clyde.

The addition means added options for meeting and event planners and will offer an even bigger taste of Scotland from the country’s national events campus.

The Clydeside Distillery is situated at the Western end of the campus, and has been bought back to life following a £10m investment by owners Morrison Glasgow Distillers Ltd. The site adds to the growing number of options for organisers looking to enhance their experience, from a traditional Scottish welcome, to guided tours, and group tastings.

“This is really good news for our clients and attendees” comments Kathleen Warden, Director of Conference Sales at the Scottish Event Campus. “We already have great entertainment options in the SSE Hydro, and now with the Clydeside Distillery we can give visitors a real taste of Scottish hospitality as part of their experience.”

The Clydeside Distillery also represents another addition to the regeneration of the Finnieston area, around the Scottish Event Campus, fast becoming one of the most fashionable areas in the city of Glasgow. The distillery itself will produce a single malt whisky, uncharacteristic for a lowland distillery which would normally be expected to produce a softer, smoother whisky.
