Loch Lomond 18 Year 70cl


Tasting Note

A deep fruity character. With wonderful sweetness and warmth intertwined with a hint of smoke.


The first site of the former Loch Lomond Distillery dates back to 1814, sited at the north end of Loch Lomond near Tarbet (known as Tarbat). The present business was established in 1964 by the former owners of the Littlemill Distillery in Bowling. Production began in Loch Lomond the following year in 1965. In 1984, the distillery stopped production until Glen Catrine Bonded Warehouses acquired the business and resumed malt production in 1987. Grain whisky production began in 1993 and two new malt stills were added in 1999. At the time the Grain distillery opened in 1994, it was the only distillery in Scotland producing both Grain and Malt whisky. It also operates a unique set-up of three sets of stills.

In 2014, the distillery was acquired in a Management Buy In led by CEO Colin Matthews alongside the London based private equity group Exponent.

In June 2019 the business was acquired in a secondary LBO, again led by CEO Colin Matthews and the management team with financial backing on this occasion coming from the Asian buyout fund Hillhouse Capital. (from Wikipedia)
