I was delighted to be invited alongside my colleague Carol Monaghan MP (Glasgow North West) to visit the Glasgow Distillery. This is a fantastic facility providing skilled employment to many in my constituency and beyond. They are responsible for Glasgow’s first gin, Makar Glasgow Gin, and are building a promising reputation as they ramp up production.
Scotland is a world-leader in higher-value exports like whisky, and it was fascinating to see the work that goes on behind the scenes to turn raw materials into uisge beatha and onwards for consumption – in moderation!
Thanks to Liam, Ian and team for their kind hospitality in hosting myself and Carol to their distillery.
