The Pot Still (Glasgow, Hope St)

Postby WishayKillie » Fri Jun 08, 2007 11:56 am

Just wondering if many people had ever been in there for a drink. I was in last week, I managed to drag my girlfriend away from Buchanan St shops for 5 minutes, I was rushed so only got a few drinks in, Ardbeg 10Y, Lagavulin 16Y and Highland Park 12Y. I wanted to try the Longmore 15Y but they didnt have any left also out of Highland Park 25 :cry: It was my first time in and will be back in the near future.

Hi WK - aye, I know the Pot Still well and often go there when thro shopping with my trouble and strife as she battles her way through the shops of Sauchiehall Street. The Pot Still is a great place.

First time there was last May when I sampled the Ardbeg Very Young followed by a Still Young - like sookin a growbag. Shortly after I nipped back round to Oddbins on Sauchiehall St to do my own bit of retail therapy and bought a bottle of each!

I assume you're a Killie fan exiled in Wishay then?

Yes I've been a couple of times.... I had to drag myself in there while the other half was shopping :wink:

Met 2 nice Norwegian guys and had a good laugh with them.... Both into to their metal and one of them called the other satan the drunker he got .... but all harmless fun ....

Yes a nice pub and some great whiskies ... glenfiddich 18yo was on special the day I was there and was the same price and glenfiddich 12yo :roll:

I was in there the following day also and both Glenfiddich 18yo's that they had on the go were nearly finished and they had to replace one before I left .... punters know value for money when they see it ....

Hi WK, and welcome to the forum.

I agree, Pot Still is an amazing pub, with a HUGE range of malts behind the bar.

There's a wee interview with Ken, the owner here on Singlemalt TV. Worth a watch

Yeah a mental Killie fan (always a bottle of Johnnie Walker in the house), but I'm born and raised in Wishaw haha. Good to see a couple of other pot still fans, good place if you fancy a wee taste before you buy. I tend to go round to the whisky shop in Buchanan galleries for some browsing, although they had hee haw in last week.

The Pot Still is a cracking wee place. I was last there with Malt Teaser after WL Glasgow. Can't actually recall much of the evening :? but do remember waking with a snifter of Talisker stuck in my shirt top pocket and the remains of a fish supper on the dressing table :oops:
Breakfast was a "Walk in the woods" with Dave Broom and several other rather quiet and somber individuals :coffee:

Yes, a great well stocked bar indeed! I was there in August last year and tasted the Serendipity, but was so congested I couldn't taste much at all. Funny to hear about the Norwegians you met irishwhiskeychaser!

Love The Pot Still. I am a member of Glasgows Whisky Club and we hold regular tastings/get togethers in there. The staff and management are great and the whisky range fantastic.

They do a nice pint of Guinness too. :thumbsup: I quite like to sup a pint when drinking malt.

That's a link to their website. The HP event on the 27th of this month is being held where I work. Membership is £30 a year for which you get a bottle of Glengoyne 10yo and a miniature of HP18yo. Let me know if you require further information. I don't stay that far from you here in Blantyre.
