Six famous ‘Whisky Bars of Glasgow’ have joined together in a new collaboration to attract visitors to Glasgow and promote their whisky experience to tourists. The scheme – created under the auspices of ScotlandWhisky, the national Whisky tourism initiative – follows the successful launch of a similar programme in Edinburgh last year.

The scheme is being supported by a free ‘Whisky Bars of Glasgow’ map and a more in-depth website (www.whiskybarsofglasgow.com). Chris Conway, of ScotlandWhisky, said: “Glasgow has a long and proud association with the Scotch Whisky industry and is world famous for its hospitality. So it’s only right that through the ‘Whisky Bars of Glasgow’, six renowned bars have joined together to highlight that connection.”

“We know pubs and bars are an important part of many visitors’ experience of Scotland, as is the wish to try Scotch Whisky in its home country. ‘Whisky Bars of Glasgow’ will ensure that visitors know where they can be ensured a great bar and whisky experience.”

Conway went on to say: “With Homecoming Scotland’s Whisky Month beginning in May, this is the perfect time to launch the scheme and to build on the growing interest in whisky tourism.”

Scotlandwhisky is looking to develop similar programmes in other parts of Scotlandwhisky.
