Glasgow’s Wester Distillery is back in the rum business

GLASGOW-based rum brand Wester Distillery is back on the market after being acquired by Gleann Mór Spirits.

Wester, founded in 2018, produces a range of rums infused with flavours including coconut, chocolate, coffee and pineapple.

After a ‘brief hiatus’ in production, the brand has been acquired and revived by Gleann Mór Spirits, the company behind the Leith Spirits, Edinburgh Rum, Glasgow Gin and Firkin Gin brands.

Wester was officially relaunched at the end of June.

Emily Coyle, portfolio manager at Wester, said: “We are delighted to bring Wester back to its rightful place in Glasgow.

“As passionate believers in the brand’s heritage and potential, we are committed to upholding the same unparalleled taste and quality that made Wester a beloved name in the spirits industry in the first place.”
