Loch Lomond Group is set to release a limited edition 50-year-old expression of its namesake single malt Scotch whisky. The liquid has spent 25 years in an American oak hogshead with the second half of its maturation in an European oak hogshead.

"Our straight neck pot stills were unique in 1966 when they were first installed," said John Peterson, the production director at Loch Lomond Distillery. "They are still unique to this day, providing us with greater control over the quality and flavour profile of the spirit."

A total of 60 decanters will be available in selected markets towards the end of this year. Each crystal decanter is packaged in a leather-lined oak "chest".

In the UK, the iteration will be available from specialist spirits retailers including The Whisky Shop, The Whisky Exchange, Royal Mile Whiskies and Master of Malt.

Group CEO Colin Matthews said: "We are proud to become one of a very select few distilleries in the world which have released a 50 year old whisky."
