About Loch Lomond
Loch Lomond, Inchmurrin, Glen Douglas, Old Rhosdhu, Craiglodge, Inchmoan, Croftengea, and Inchfad are all produced at the distillery. The uniqueness of Loch Lomond’s pot stills rest in the cylindrical necks of the spirit stills. Traditionally the necks of malt stills are open. The Loch Lomond stills include special distillation trays in the necks, allowing for greater contact with the cooling alcohol vapour. This style of still allows for different ‘flavour notes’ to be captured and emphasised through the range of alcohol strengths that can be captured and rejected, which is much more difficult to achieve through a conventional pot still.
The current Loch Lomond Distillery was founded in 1965 by the former owners of the silent Littlemill Distillery, the oldest distillery in Scotland.
Loch Lomond create a variety of malts including heavily peated (typical of Islay), complex & fruity (typical of Speyside), full bodied & fruity (typical of Highland), and soft & fruity (typical of Lowland).
Loch Lomond is the only distillery in Scotland to produce both malt and grain whisky on the same site. It produces about 10 million litres of grain whisky and 2.5 million litres of single malt whisky per year.
