About Loch Lomond Single Grain Scotch Whisky
Loch Lomond is one of those signature places in Scotland that is revered the world over by iconic creatives, poets, and artists. Boasting the largest lake in Great Britain, this impressive national park is brimming with beauty and natural elegance. The Loch Lomond distillery gets its distinction from being one of the few distilleries in Scotland to produce both grain and malt spirit. Specializing in grain whisky, their grain crop became quite pervasive.
Loch Lomond was built in 1966, riding the wave of a distillery industry boom. The venture was a collaboration between American Duncan Thomas and Chicago-based Barton Brands. After changing hands num proud times, Loch Lomond grew substantially into one of the most innovative resourceful distilleries in all of Scotland. They began producing a wide range of whiskies under several labels. Loch Lomond is now owned by Diageo.
Loch Lomond whiskies are characterized by their mellow, gentle characteristics. This elegant single grain Loch Lomond is distilled in a Coffey still and aged in ex-bourbon casks. Crafted entirely from malted barley, this whisky is complex yet approachable. Its distinctively soft and fruity character with hints of vanilla and peat earned this spirit a Gold Medal at the 2017 Berlin International Spirits Competition, as well as Silver at 2016 IWSC.

Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)
Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.
