Nice, friendly bar if you're in the mood for a wee dram or two. Plenty of other drinks on offer and a great selection of beers. Busy with a mixed crowd and a nice, relaxed atmosphere.

If you are in Glasgow and you like Whiskey, then this place is a must. I was told over 300 Whiskeys are available. I just a had a few tasters of new whiskeys to me and they were excellent. I will be back!

Good atmosphere with a mix of tourists, locals, students, oldies. Whisky of the month was Auchentoshan American oak, it slipped down a treat and was a bargain at £2.50 for 35cl. Got a bit too busy for me, but seemed a good natured crowd.

This is a great place for an informal whisky tutorial. We had tried to set up a formal whisky tasting during our visit to Glasgow but none of the regular offerings were available over Christmas. So we dropped by here after supper. Great find. We told the barman our problem and he responded by presenting 3 different bottles for each... More

This place is fabulous especially if you love single malts Ask any of the team to recommend a "whisky flight" and they'll keep you right I'm not wild about the heavily smoked or peated varieties so they gave us a Speyside and lowland journey The prices are surprisingly reasonable, so just go for it

Definitely expensive for mt taste but their scotch ans gin selection was superb. I understand why it was so crowded, we went after watching videos about it. Worth going for the experience and a delightful drink but you can get these other places for less

I've been to the Pot Still a few times, great choice of beer (I like beer!) but I decided to treat my buddy to my favourite whisky - 15YO Lapharoig. the cost was just under £18 for 2 singles. I got the guy to checked that he'd p[ressed the right buttons and he assured me he had. Its always been... More

Thanks for the review, glad you appreciate the beer selection! Sadly, whisky's not getting any cheaper, tis true. You are absolutely right about the disparity between the 10 and 15; we sell the 10 year old at £4.75, the 15 at £7.90, so two would have been £15.80. The only Laphroaig expression that would run to about the £18 mark... More
