Details

Nestling by the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond, this family-owned Scotch whisky distillery takes its name and its exquisitely pure water from this most picturesque and celebrated of all Scotland's lochs. The beauty and tranquility of the setting belies the considerable activity within one of the finest Scotch Whisky Distilleries.

Uniquely designed stills enable them to produce a total of eight different single malt Scotch Whiskies. In addition, their new "state of the art" grain stills, the most modern in the land, arguably produce the very best single grain whisky in Scotland.

At Loch Lomond dedicated experts have been nurturing distinctive drams for generations. The ever-mindful attention of the managers ensures that only the choicest ingredients are selected, then allowed to mature undisturbed within the finest oak barrels, crafted within the distillery by their very own coopers.

It is currently the only distillery in Scotland that produces both grain and malt whisky on the same site. The average annual production is 10 million litres of grain alcohol and 2.5 million litres of malt alcohol, the equivalent of 43 million standard bottles of whisky every year.

Most Scotch malt whisky distilleries, because of the design of the stills, produce only one type of spirit. The distillery employs four unusual stills with rectifying heads and two conventional pot stills with traditional ‘swan necks’. This range of stills allows them to produce a total of eight different single highland malt whiskies.

This exquisite 12-year-old single malt is aged in three types of cask - bourbon, refill and re-charged. These whiskies are brought together delivering a perfectly balanced single malt under the watchful eye of Master Distiller, Michael Henry.

Tasting Notes
Aromas of crisp green apple, ripe pear and refreshing citrus lemon with background notes of golden cereal. Orchard fruits and lemon meringue on the palate . The deep fruity character of pear lead into citrus lemon, vanilla meringue and light biscuit sweetness. Medium length finish with gentle wood smoke and a lingering peaty tang.
