Glenglassaugh Distillery, a Scotland-based malt Scotch whiskey distillery, has opened a new dedicated visitor centre at the former distillery office and revenue and customs office.

The new visitor centre features a café, a tasting room, a retail shop with stocks of entire range of Glenglassaugh and a Revival Tour for visitors.

The opening of the visitor centre marks another milestone by Glenglassaugh Distillery in 2012, which includes launching the first single malt Scotch whiskey – Revival – in March 2012, appointment of brand development manager in May 2012 and the recent launch of series of new single cask bottling – The Massandra Connection.

Glenglassaugh’s new visitor centre will initially be open from Monday through to Friday, reported Whiskey Magazine.

Glenglassaugh Distillery managing director Stuart Nickerson said it was evident soon after the distillery recommenced production that a visitor centre was needed.

"When Glenglassaugh was last open in the 1980s, distilleries were only just realising the potential for visitor centres and the interest in malt whisky, so there wasn’t an existing building for us to work with," Nickerson added.

"We could offer the tours for those who wanted to visit, but without a dedicated building we were pretty restricted as to what we could do.

"The solution was to convert the old revenue and customs office into a tasting room, and to knock through into what was the old staff office for the retail area and café. We are incredibly proud that all of renovation work and fitting out has been done in-house by our own maintenance team member to a very impressive standard, and we hope that it will really help to improve the overall visitor experience."
