Bridgeton distillery

Lowland single malt Scotch whisky

One of the many lost distilleries to grace Glasgow’s streets, Bridgeton (also called Brigton and Hopewell), distillery stood on a spot that is today between Main Street and Savoy Street, halfway from Bridgeton station to the Clyde.

Although current maps show no stream nearby, a watercourse may well have flowed there in the early 1800s.
