The original distillery can be traced back to 1770. It was originally called Dundas Hill and in the middle of 18th century it was changed to Glasgow Distillery Company for a number of years. The distillery closed its doors in 1902 and was demolished a year later.
Now, over a century later, local gin fans are able to sample Makar Glasgow Gin, and it could herald the dawn of a new era of distilling in Glasgow.
With a number of small craft gin distilleries enjoying a roaring trade in Edinburgh, the West is following suit, led by dedicated gin bar Gin 71, The Glasgow Gin Club and the Glasgow GinFest.
