Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

The Clydeside Distillery opened in 2017, located within the pump house, that used to control entry in and out of the Queen’s Dock, once a thriving empire of export in liquid gold. After partaking in a dram or two and touring the distillery (with takeaway drams available for designated drivers), enjoy a tour of locally sourced Scottish flavours in the ‘taste of Scotland platter.’ Highlights include delicate Inverlochy hot kiln smoked salmon that melts in the mouth and peppery Great Glen venison salami creating an earthy flavour that transports you to the rolling Highland hills. Explore Scotland with one of their five flights of whisky or pick any dram from the enormous selection and add it to a coffee. Alternatively, complete your visit with Tantrum Doughnut’s whisky-glazed confection, exclusive to Clydeside, made with a buttery brioche bun and a malty glaze made using Bank Note whisky. So, ‘gaun yersel and hae a wee scran and dram’. Slàinte!
