Loch Lomond Group is an independent distiller and blender of some of the finest and rarest whiskies in the world, with a number of whisky distilleries under the ownership and stewardship of the group as well as a number of other spirit brands. The group currently operates the Glen Scotia distillery in the Argyllshire port of Campbeltown, Loch Lomond distillery at Alexandria in Dunbartonshire and the Glen Catrine bonded warehouse and bottling facility in Ayrshire.
With a rich and premium portfolio of spirits, it made sense for the group to create their own gin that was based on their ethos of providing premium spirits that capture the imagination and capture the spirit of Scotland. Ben Lomond Gin has been inspired by the majesty and beauty of Ben Lomond and the extensive natural flora within Loch Lomond and The Trossachs.
Taking its namesake from the iconic Scottish mountain, Ben Lomond, Ben Lomond Gin is a traditional London Dry style gin. Distilled using a mix of 11 botanicals including angelica root, rose petals, liquorice, and handpicked blackcurrants plus locally foraged rowan berries. Blended beautifully this gin is vibrant and crisp and offers a smooth, fresh flavour, which finishes with a delicate berry sweetness. Loch Lomond Group also entered a partnership with conservation charity the John Muir Trust, which will plant 50,000 native trees, including rowan, across regions of Scotland.
