LOCH LOMOND DISTILLERY – 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). Sadly in the old days relatively couple of paper records were kept and the closing date of this distillery continues to be unclear.

 

Loch Lomond Distillery was commissioned by the Littlemill Distilling Company in 1965 with first distillation in 1966. In 1984, the distillery closed – or fell silent, to utilize the traditional term. Gladly however, Alexander Bulloch and the Glen Catrine company got the business and resumed malt production in 1987. Grain whisky production began in 1993 and 2 new malt stills were added in 1999.

 

At the time the Grain distillery opened up in 1994, it was the only distillery in Scotland producing both Grain and Malt whisky. It also operates an one-of-a-kind set-up of three collections of stills.Our distillery has the ability and self sufficiency to produce Special Edition Whisky consisting of, Single Grain Whisky and Deluxe Blends.

MALT POT STILLThe uniqueness of our pot malt stills rest in the cylindrical necks of the spirit stills. Traditionally the necks of malt stills are open. The Loch Lomond stills consist of unique distillation trays in the necks, permitting better contact with the cooling alcohol vapour.

This makes the process much more efficient.

 

These stills can produce alcohol up to 90% ABV where normal stills deliver the alcohol at around 70% ABV. This style of still allows for various ‘flavour notes’ to be captured and emphasised through the range of alcohol strengths that can be captured and declined.

This is far more difficult to achieve through a conventional pot still.
