The island of Inchmurrin is rich in woodland and grassy meadow – and the tasting notes we’ve read suggest this whisky is well named as grassy notes abound in the Inchmurrin range.
Interestingly, the original Loch Lomond distillery was located in Arrochar but that was founded in 1814 and only lasted 3 years. The present Loch Lomond Distillery is located in Alexandria and is a relatively young one being founded in 1964. The two distilleries share nothing except the name.
Today’s Loch Lomond distillery began production in 1965 and ran until 1984 when it was mothballed. Re-opening in 1987, it was expanded in 1993 by the installation of 2 new malt stills and a grain distillery. It was the first distillery in Scotland to produce both grain and malt is one of only two today that do so (Girvan Distillery being the other). It remains the only distillery in Scotland to run 3 sets of stills.
