LOCH LOMOND DISTILLERY - The very 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). Unfortunately in the old days relatively couple of paper records were maintained and the closing date of this distillery remains unclear.

Loch Lomond Distillery was commissioned by the Littlemill Distilling Company in 1965 with very first distillation in 1966. In 1984, the distillery closed - or fell silent, to use the traditional term. Happily though, Alexander Bulloch and the Glen Catrine company acquired business and resumed malt production in 1987. Grain whisky production began in 1993 and two 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 additionally operates an one-of-a-kind set-up of three sets of stills.Our distillery has the ability and self sufficiency to produce Special Edition Whisky including, 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 include unique distillation trays in the necks, permitting greater contact with the cooling alcohol vapour.
This makes the process extra efficient.

These stills can produce alcohol up to 90% ABV where normal stills deliver the alcohol at around 70% ABV. This style of still permits different 'flavour notes' to be captured and emphasised through the range of alcohol strengths that can be captured and rejected.
This is a lot more difficult to achieve through a conventional pot still.
