Glasgow spirit shop branches out into wine and beer

Published:  22 June, 2015

Glasgow independent The Good Spirits Co has opened a second shop in the city.

The new branch, in West Nile Street in the City, expands the product offering of the business and will go under the The Good Spirits Co Wine & Beer.

It will focus on Italian and Spanish wines and craft beer but will also stock Champagne, port, sherry, and dessert wines.

Co-owner Shane Goodbody said: "I'm a real fan of Spanish wines and it has been enormous fun selecting a range that includes the classics, like Rioja and Albarino, as well as some hidden gems that have never been available in Glasgow before now."

His business partner Matthew McFadyen added: "Glasgow has a long standing love affair with Spanish and Italian wine, so that's our biggest focus, but Australia, New Zealand and other New World countries are well-represented too. We hope that we have something for every taste."

The Good Spirits Co was founded in 2011 in Bath Street and has its main focus on malt whisky, plus gin, rum, bourbon, brandy, vodka, and liqueurs.

It has a custom-built tasting room for regular public events.

Goodbody and McFadyen both previously managed Glasgow stores for Oddbins.
