We work with scores of suppliers to track down hard to find bottles, and are always looking for new and interesting spirits to sell. We run regular public tastings in a purpose built tasting room - full details here.
Since opening in June 2011, the shop has expanded its range and continued to grow, currently employing ten staff. In May 2015 we'll be opening another shop, The Good Spirits Co. Wine & Beer.
The Good Spirits Co. was founded in 2011 by three drinks enthusiasts - Shane Goodbody, Matthew McFadyen, and Mark Connelly - who met while working at Oddbins. Believing that Glasgow was sorely lacking a specialist spirits shop, the idea for The Good Spirits Co. was conceived.
Shane a WSET diplomate, had worked for Oddbins since 2003. Prior to that he had been involved in selling quality libations to the discerning public in various alehouses of good repute around the country.
Matthew had five years of Oddbins experience under his belt in various roles. Before that he was a sales executive for a small jewellery firm working across Europe and Australia.
Mark's interest in whisky far predated The Good Spirits Co. He founded the hugely popular Whisky Whisky Whisky online forum, as well as co-founding Glasgow's Whisky Festival. In 2014 Mark left the Good Spirits Co. to pursue other (whisky-related!) interests.
