Scotch Whisky: From Grain to Glass marks the centenary of the Scotch Whisky Association
An exhibition celebrating the history of Scotch whisky has opened today at the Mitchell Library in Glasgow.
The exhibition, Scotch Whisky: From Grain to Glass, was created last year to mark the centenary of the Scotch Whisky Association (SWA).
The exhibition includes images and artefacts from private collections and Scotch whisky producers, gathered together by the SWA to illustrate whisky's role in Scotland's society and economy, from production to export and marketing.
It also revisits the "What is Whisky?" debate of the early 20th Century which helped to establish the industry in modern times.
Gavin Hewitt, chief executive of the SWA, said: "With more than 60 per cent of Scotch Whisky bottled in the greater Glasgow area, you could call the city one of the spiritual homes of Scotch Whisky.
"For more than 100 years we have been committed to promoting and protecting Scotch Whisky.
“We hope as many people as possible will visit the exhibition to find out more about the heritage of Scotland's national drink.”
The exhibition runs until July 31, 2013.
