Loch Lomond The Open Special Edition 2022 (46% ABV) is a non-age-stated single malt Scotch whisky, which was initially matured in American oak casks and finished in Bordeaux Red Wine Barriques.

At Loch Lomond Whiskies we are very proud to show our support as the official spirit partner of this momentous anniversary.”

Our two new, limited edition single malts are highly valuable additions to our whisky portfolio, demonstrating the breadth of distillation techniques Loch Lomond Whiskies is capable of. We’re confident both expressions will appeal to a variety of tastes, budgets and interests, particularly in the lead up to Father’s Day in June.”
