Loch Lomond is not only a famously beautiful Scottish loch; it is also a famously fine brand of whisky. Ben Lomond, in the Scottish Highlands, lies on the eastern shore of Loch Lomond. For that reason, the shadow of this scenic Scottish mountain falls over the distillery of Loch Lomond. This distillery can trace its history all the way back to 1814 and draws its name from the loch on which it can be found.

History

The original Loch Lomond Distillery was built in 1814 at the northern end of Loch Lomond. The current Loch Lomond Distillery was built in 1964 at the opposite end of the loch. Its construction was paid for by the owners of the nearby Littlemill Distillery.

This new Loch Lomond Distillery was producing spirits until 1984. It was bought by Alexander Bulloch and the Glen Catrine company in 1987 and began by producing purely malt whiskies. The production of grain whisky began in 1993.

Product Range

The Loch Lomond Distillery is able to produce grain, single malt, single grain, special edition, and deluxe blends on site due to the size of the facilities and the number of stills in action.

The Loch Lomond Collection is made up of three single malts: Loch Lomond Original, Loch Lomond 12 Year Old, and Loch Lomond 18 Year Old. The blended whiskies in this collection are Loch Lomond Reserve and Loch Lomond Signature, which is married in the special 100 cask solera.

The Island Collection contains whiskies named after two of the islands which can be found in the loch. Inchmurrin is the largest island in Loch Lomond and the largest freshwater island in the British Isles. The Inchmurrin collection includes Inchmurrin Madeira Wood Finish, Inchmurrin 12 Year Old and Inchmurrin 18 Year Old.

In the past, Inchmoan was used as a source for peat for the fires of nearby villagers. Now, it lends its name to the whiskies from the Island Collection with a distinct peated nature. These are Inchmoan 12 Year Old and Inchmoan 1992, which was exclusively distilled in 1992.

Other Relevant Information

The distillery has special stills with distillation trays which allow the stills to be more efficient and deliver a spirit with a higher alcohol content than normal stills. This also allows for more facets of flavour to be captured and passed on to the final product.

Loch Lomond is one of four Scottish distilleries to have its own cooperage on site. This allows the distillery to repair and char its own casks to perfection.
