The Pot Still

1 user reviews

The Pot Still is the go-to destination for whisky in Glasgow. Apparently, a bunch of Japanese business men once flew up from London for the day, just to taste a rare malt they could only find here. With literally hundreds of bottles (370 on the last count) on offer from around the world, as well as the best of the local stuff too, there's good reason this pub is an institution.
