Exclusive New Whisky Takes Off at Glasgow Airport

 

 If you are travelling through Glasgow Airport, you can be one of the first in the world to purchase the new Loch Lomond Scotch Whisky range.

 

The award-winning independent distiller, Loch Lomond Group  make their duty free debut with four exciting whisky expressions that showcase the innovation and craft championed at their distillery in Alexandria just a few miles away.

 

The new collection features two single malt Scotch Whiskies - Loch Lomond 12-Year-Old and Loch Lomond Inchmurrin Madeira Cask Finish, as well as the premium blend Loch Lomond Signature and Loch Lomond Single Grain – the perfect whisky for you if you are just starting out on your whisky journey  

 

The new collection is priced from £25 to £75 and the one litre bottles come in stunning gift tubes that tell the story of the unique parts that come together to create the innovative award-winning liquid inside. 

 

The inspiration for the premium packaging came from the magnificent Loch Lomond distillery itself. Designers worked to reflect the Group’s commitment to whisky craftsmanship; from the distinctive stills, and innovative distilling methods, to the working cooperage.

 

The launch is in response to growing demand for Loch Lomond Scotch Whiskies, which are now available in almost 100 countries.

 

As the local airport, Glasgow was chosen for the launch to emphasise the provenance of the range, which incorporates four expressions each with their own unique flavour and character revealing the innovative techniques used at the distillery. 

 

André de Almeida, managing director of Global Travel Retail at Loch Lomond Group, said: “We’ve been keen to introduce a global travel retail range for some time now following increased demand for our Loch Lomond whiskies overseas. It means a great deal to us to offer the new range at World Duty Free in Glasgow Airport, less than 15 miles from our spiritual home in the heart of Loch Lomond - one of Scotland’s most beautiful and popular visitor destinations.”

 

“We’re confident that we are offering something new and unique and a sense of discovery for whisky drinkers around the world.”

 

A tasting table will be available at Glasgow Airport during February and March, enabling World Duty Free’s shoppers to sample the new range and encouraging travellers to take a little piece of Loch Lomond home with them.
