All about Loch Lomond distillery

Loch Lomond Distillery is set up very close to Loch Lomond, in Alexandria.

In 1814, the first Loch Lomond Distillery was established, just on the north of Loch Lomond. Though, there are very few written records about it and virtually no solid evidence. The current distillery was founded in 1964, by the former owners of the Littlemill Distillery.

In 1971, the distillery was overtaken by Barton Brands and passed to Amalgated Distilled Products (ADP) in 1982. In 1984, distillery was closed for 3 years, 2 years after Glen Catrine Bonded Warehouse LTD bought the distillery.

Until 1993, they produced only malt Whisky. A Coffey still was added to the setup in 1993, and Loch Lomond became the only distillery to produce malt and grain Whisky under one roof.

Loch Lomond has a strange still setup. The distillery owns 2 pot stills, 4 Lomond stills and a Coffey still. The Loch Lomond stills include special distillation trays in the necks, allowing for greater contact with the cooling alcohol vapour.

Production runs 24/7 on an industrial scale. In total, there are 41 washbacks, 21 used for fermentation and 20 for grain Whisky production.

Production is around 5 million liters of malt, and 18 million liters of grain Whisky per year. The distillery also has its own cooperage sites to ensure the best quality casks.
