A GLASGOW whisky brand has won three prestigious awards.

Small batch single malt King's Inch whisky, distilled in the city, has picked up a gold medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, a 95 point gold rating and a medal at the International Wine & Spirit Competition (IWSC) Awards, and was named the UK’s best spirit at the London Spirit’s Competition (LSC) 2022.

A batch of 5000 bottles of King's Inch was released in November 2021 and the whisky is named after the old imperial measurement of an inch, as well as a forgotten island in the River Clyde.
