UKBG & Glen Scotia



We’re very proud to present yet another online master class session – all the way from north of Hadrian’s Wall. Nestled on the banks of Campbeltown Loch, on the Kintyre Peninsula, sits the Glen Scotia distillery, one of the oldest surviving producers of single malt in the region. Producing an amazing portfolio of award-winning whiskies, it’s home to an incredible level of skill, knowledge and expertise.

Our session will be lead by Gary Mills, Brand Ambassador and Visitor Experience Manager for the Lomond Estate. We’ll be taking a deep dive into tasting notes, the origins of flavour profiles, as well as covering one of the more unique aspects of distillery – cooperage, the production of barrels.

We are offering companion sample packs of Glen Scotia’s amazing whiskey lines to accompany the tasting. UKBG Members have access to special discounted sample packs, and 20 Early Birds will get the opportunity to ‘sip along’ for free. These packs will include samples from Glen Scotia’s Double Cask, the Victoriana and the Glen Scotia 15 yr old.

Book early to avoid disappointment. UKBG Members will have been emailed with a promo code – enter this on the tickets page, to reveal UKBG member discounted packages. If you cannot find your code, please contact membership services at info@ukbartendersguild.co.uk. Sample packs can only be shipped to individuals in the UK who are over-18.-We will request confirmation prior to shipping.

Speaker Bio – Gary Mills, Visitor Experience Manager and Brand Ambassador at Loch Lomond Group

Gary promotes the group’s Glen Scotia and Littlemill brands. While his job takes him all over the world, he mostly splits his time between the Loch Lomond Distillery, the modern-day home of Littlemill and Campbeltown where Glen Scotia is based. Gary recently oversaw a project to trace the fascinating history of Littlemilll which uncovered documentary evidence proving it was the oldest licensed whisky distillery in Scotland.
