Born from a simple 'what if' conversation, five casks were carefully selected from around the world and then filled with Glaswegin Premium Gin. Each cask was then rested to impart just enough character and complexity to the brand’s flagship gin. Five new expressions have been released, showcasing the best possible marriage between the gin and the cask's previous contents.
Jack Docherty, Brand Ambassador for Glaswegin noted that “It's been a process that has required time, patience, and regular tasting (it's a hard life, we know) but we couldn't be more proud of the sensational liquids we have produced. Get ready for your taste buds to be surprised and delighted as you try our carefully curated limited edition collection.”
The collection is available in five expressions- Rioja, Virgin Oak, Bourbon, Peated and Tequila Cask. Embrace your adventurous side and find your favourite - with less than 620 bottles of each cask available, these are bound to sell out fast.
The collection is available at glaswegin.com and via selected independent retailers.

Glaswegin Rioja Cask Gin
This extremely limited edition Glaswegin has been rested in shaved, toasted and re-charred Rioja red wine casks. The process accentuates the floral accents and fragrant spice of our award-winning gin for a rounded, fruity and complex finish.
Dark cherry, lemon and violet aromas lead to a sweet spice, sumac and pink peppercorn finish.
Serve with equal parts gin to tonic and garnish with red grapes.
Batch 1 bottling: 615 bottles.
Glaswegin Virgin Oak Cask Gin
This extremely limited edition Glaswegin has been aged to perfection in fresh white oak casks, or Virgin Oak. This untouched, freshly toasted cask adds a nutty, vanilla and sweet spice depth to our signature London Dry Gin.
Juniper and pink peppercorn top notes lead quickly into tangerine, candied ginger, vanilla pod and a gentle clove warmth on the palate.
Serve with a splash of ginger ale and a cinnamon stick.
Batch 1 bottling: 542 bottles.
Glaswegin Peated Cask Gin
This extremely limited edition Glaswegin has been aged to perfection in Islay single malt whisky casks. Hand-selected from a well-known distillery, the casks add just the right amount of charcoal complexity to our signature gin.
Smoked cedar and pine top notes lead to a malty and complex finish reminiscent of genever.
Try neat over ice, or with a splash of ginger beer and a twist of orange.
Batch 1 bottling: 539 bottles.
Glaswegin Bourbon Cask Gin
This extremely limited edition Glaswegin has been aged to perfection in hand- selected Bourbon casks. Imparting vanilla, charred oak and cinnamon spice, it adds softness and length to our signature London Dry.
Notes of honeysuckle and orange flower lead to a complex, sweet spice blend of star anise and cinnamon for a long finish reminiscent of marmalade.
Try with a splash of soda and a twist of orange.
Batch 1 bottling: 545 bottles.
Glaswegin Tequila Cask Gin
This extremely limited edition Glaswegin has been rested in a reposado tequila cask for a complex, earthy gin like no other. Delicately balanced to allow both spirits to shine, light juniper and citrus top notes lead to deep, sultry spice aromas.
Cracked black pepper, sandalwood, nutmeg and fennel lead to a herbaceous finish of pine, dill and coriander.
Serve with equal parts gin to tonic and a slice of lime. Alternatively, try a Last Word cocktail.
Batch 1 bottling- 287 bottles.
