Loch Lomond Whiskies has created an exclusive Loch Lomond Inchmurrin Single Cask bottling in partnership with World Duty Free. Just 278 bottles of the 10-year-old Loch Lomond Inchmurrin Single Cask will be available exclusively at World Duty Free's World of Whiskies store, located in Heathrow's Terminal 5.

On the nose, the Loch Lomond Inchmurrin Single Cask is fruity and sweet with a hint of spice. The palate offers layers of sweet vanilla and barley sugar, while the lemon and lime finish delivers a citrus edge, giving way to maple syrup and a mild oak spiciness.

This non-chill filtered Single Malt Scotch Whisky was distilled in the Loch Lomond Distillery's unique straight neck pot stills in January 2008 and bottled at cask strength – 57.1% ABV - in February 2018.

Loch Lomond Whiskies' partnership with World Duty Free - who own and operate the specialist World of Whiskies stores - and Heathrow, follows on from successful sales of Loch Lomond Group's Global Travel Retail (GTR) Scotch whisky range at World of Whiskies outlets in airports throughout the UK.

This is a great example of a trinity project between Loch Lomond Group, World Duty Free and Heathrow."

Kathryn Kindness, Commercial Category Manager from World Duty Free, said: "We're delighted to be able to offer this unique, limited edition Loch Lomond Inchmurrin Single Cask bottling to our World of Whiskies customers at Terminal 5. Travellers won't be able to get their hands on this in any other location in the world, so it will be the ideal addition for their collections or to purchase as a special gift."

Chris Annetts, Retail and Service Proposition Director, commented: "We are delighted to offer Heathrow passengers this unique and exclusive British product. Whisky is loved the world over and this additional cask adds to our fantastic range of distillations to suit every taste."

Founded in 1814, Loch Lomond Whiskies can trace its roots back to the Littlemill distillery, which was established in 1772 and is thought to be one of the oldest in the world. Its current malt and grain distilleries, in Alexandria, Dunbartonshire on the banks of Loch Lomond, were built in the 1960s and are among only a few in the industry to maintain an onsite cooperage. The malt distillery at Alexandria also features a unique combination of traditional swan neck and distinctive straight-necked pot stills, enabling it to produce a diverse range of flavour profiles.

Retail price: £59 per 70cl bottle
