Clydebank's whiskey distillery is inviting everyone to a festival to help them celebrate their 200th birthday.

Bosses at Auchentoshan have promised an evening of "modern social experience" as it welcomes up-and-coming Glasgow funk and jazz artists to its big birthday bash.

Calling it Auchentoshan Live@200, the Great Western Road distillery will also be launching a new 25-year-old single malt whisky to toast the occasion.

Auchentoshan Distillery manager, Susan Williamson, said: “We’re thrilled to have the chance to welcome our teams, the people who love us, work with us, and our fans, together to share this once-in-a-generation Auchentoshan moment.

"Auchentoshan is part of Glasgow’s history, and it’s exciting to start our next chapter by sharing our birthday with new talent and people from across the city.”

The event will be set outdoors on the grounds of its famed distillery across a stage, three tents and two bars.

Alongside a food offering, there will also be live music from fresh Glasgow talents kitti, Federation of the Disco Pimp, Rebecca Vasmant, and the Rebecca Vasmant Ensemble.

Fabian Fischer, global marketing manager for Auchentoshan at Beam Suntory, said: “Here at Auchentoshan we’ve flourished for two centuries, but we don’t dwell on the past — we look ahead to social, creative, adventurous times.  

"This celebration will kick off our next two hundred years of triple distillation: open to new ideas, serious about quality, and capable of innovations to excite our fans around the world.”

Gaelic for "corner of the field" and pronounced “Ock-un-tosh-un”, the distillery set up shop in 1823. Part of the site was a victim of the Clydebank Blitz in 1941, with German bombs destroying a warehouse.

Tickets for the event, set for September 2, can be purchased here, with all ticket proceeds going to local charities.
