Single Malt Scotch Whisky 'Peated' by 1770 Glasgow is one of the distillery's flagship products. At the heart of this whiskey is a careful selection of the finest Scottish barley and the exceptionally pure water of Loch Katrine. The very high quality of the finished product starts from the raw material, which is then distilled in four pot stills heated thanks to the action of the aromatic peat of the Scottish Highlands, which gives the classic smoky scent. Once the substances have been extracted thanks to the use of these stills, called Tara, Mhairi, Margaret and Frances, who still work following the ancient craft traditions, we proceed to the aging phase, carried out for a few years in selected wooden barrels. To be tasted on important occasions.
