“Malts to die for”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

Wanted to find an authentic pub in Glasgow with a good selection of malt whiskys. Pot Still was suggested by a local and he got it spot on, the waiter was extremely helpful in recommending different brands, a lovely unspoilt oasis in the heart of Glasgow

“Best whisky pub altogether”
Reviewed 8 July 2014 via mobile

Landed in the Pot Still by coincidence; fantastic collection of whiskies, good pub food and most friendly personnel!
Worth a major detour as it is really genuine, full of happy locals!

“The spirit of discovery”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Snuggled comfortably in the plethora of drinking and eating options that is Hope Street, the Pot Still is a genuine Oasis. It retains a drinking mans feel that's hard to find in the middle of town, and attracts a broad spectrum of humanity.

One of the incongruously beautiful things about a visit to the Pot Still is stepping forward to the bar, perhaps with a whisky in mind, perhaps seeking guidance from the highly knowledgable staff, is to be confronted with a high class range of bottled and cask conditioned ale to accompany your whisky.

But oh, the whisky. Never before have I been faced with as fine a range of malt whiskies, and could spend a lifetime working my way along them.

Anyone can enjoy this down to earth, well run pub. If you like whisky, you'll love the Pot Still.
