Loch Lomond Group will be introducing the new expression in Cannes, where it will also be announcing details of a new ultra-premium expression which will be its oldest-ever release.
Loch Lomond Group owns the award-winning Loch Lomond, Glen Scotia and Littlemill Scotch whisky brands.
The Loch Lomond GTR Scotch whisky collection was first launched at Glasgow Airport in February 2017 and became its top-selling Scotch whisky brand, says the company. The Loch Lomond GTR Scotch whisky collection is now available in 11 World of Whiskies shops throughout UK airports including branches in Edinburgh and London Heathrow. The GTR ranges continue to gain listings in Europe, the Americas, Asia and the Middle East.
The Loch Lomond Inchmoan 10 Year Old Single Malt 1L global travel exclusive is distilled at the group’s Alexandria distillery, where it takes its name from Inchmoan Island located in Loch Lomond. Inchmoan means ‘the island of the peat’ in Scottish Gaelic as for centuries mainlanders used peat cut from it as a source of fuel.
It is designed to complement the existing Loch Lomond GTR collection which includes the Loch Lomond Inchmurrin Madeira Cask Finish and the Loch Lomond 12 Year Old.
André de Almeida, managing director of Global Travel Retail at Loch Lomond Group, said: “The Loch Lomond Inchmoan 10 Year Old GTR exclusive Single Malt will be a fantastic addition to our existing GTR range and provides travelers with an even greater choice of flavors from Loch Lomond Group whiskies. What’s also exciting is that it showcases the wide range of flavor profiles that we can achieve at our Alexandria distillery thanks to our unique stills.
“We are extremely proud of the success to date of the Glen Scotia and Loch Lomond GTR Scotch whisky collections and we look forward to working with partners who are keen to offer consumers something different for them to discover, and grow their sales in the process.”
The Loch Lomond Inchmoan 10 Year Old GTR exclusive Single Malt 1L will be available from travel retail outlets early 2018 and priced at £42.
