For the launch of Wester Spirit Distillery, Wester Spirit Co. steps away from conventional copper stills into 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 flavour profile. Combined, this helps to create a spirit hand-crafted with intuition, expertise and enhanced flavour with guaranteed consistency. This means the Genio Still is able to reproduce Wester Spirit Co.’s creative and contemporary recipe with unrivalled accuracy. The distillery will also provide the opportunity for the brand to meet the growing demand for spiced rum by increasing the production limit from 250 bottles per month to 6000.
The first rum distillery to open in the city of Glasgow in over 300 years, Wester Spirit Distillery is located in the hive of Partick, a natural home for a distinctive and creative brand to reside amongst the vibrant eclectic mix of bars and eateries, further enhancing the city’s night-time offering.
Tours around the distillery will be held with a masterclass in the history and process of rum production, ending with the opportunity for guests to create their own cocktail. Exclusive tours will place the power in the hands of the party as they spice their own rum. The distillery will also host pop-up restaurants and secret gigs, offering everyone the best of city living.
