Glenglassaugh Whisky Tasting


☆ This is a members-only event ☆

Thalita Alves returns to the Wild Rover, pouring out whiskey from Scotland's Glenglassaugh (pronounced Glen-gla-ssoch) Distillery.

This is the first time the brand has featured at the tasting but the drams have been listed on the whisky menu at the bar since the Wild Rover first swung open the big green door.

In 1907, only 15 years after the takeover, Glenglassaugh fell silent, and it remained closed until 1931. After a five-year burst of activity, it was closed again from 1936-1960. Before reopening, however, Glenglassaugh was completely overhauled and re-equipped.

It continued in production until 1986 when it was forced to close. The license was returned in 1992 and for a long time it seemed that a revival of the distillery was unlikely. That all changed, though, in 2008, since which time new ownership and management has breathed new life into a distillery many had imagined as permanently moribund.

This is a free tasting for members only and only a limited amount of seats are available. If there is no availability, please add yourself to the waitlist.
