The Loch Lomond Group has launched the first in a new range of ultra-premium Scotch whiskies under its namesake brand.
Loch Lomond 45 Year Old, unveiled today, was matured in American oak casks before spending a year in a first-fill Oloroso Sherry cask. The expression, which has already sold out on the company’s website, is currently limited to 200, 70cl bottles.
The release is the first of a three-strong ‘Remarkable Stills’ series that will showcase the company’s whiskies produced in its straight-neck pot stills.
“Our straight neck pot stills … place flavour at the centre of what we do,” said the company’s master blender, Michael Henry. “It is only fitting that we mark their significance to us through the Remarkable Stills Series.”
In August last year, the privately-owned company introduced a new look for Loch Lomond and incorporated the Inchmurrin and Inchmoan 12 year old expressions into the brand.
