Macallan

“From my initial contact with Mark the whole experience of selling my cask of 1989 Macallan Whisky has been a breeze. Mark was very helpful, exceedingly dedicated and totally professional at all times.

It was an excellent service provided at a very reasonable cost. Mark obtained a fantastic six-figure sum for my cask which I am completely over the moon with.

I would not hesitate to recommend his services to others.”

Tim Johnson 

“Mark sold a cask of whisky which I had inherited and did not know what to do with. The offer I got through Mark was much higher than the distillery had offered me and the whole process was simple and best of all, profitable!

He explained all of the steps I needed to take in a straightforward manner and no question was too small for him to answer. Well recommended.”

“Mark sold a barrel of Springbank for me – he is very attentive, always responds quickly, and kept me informed throughout the process, and achieved a very pleasing sale price. S

Selling a barrel is quite slow and administratively fiddly, so having someone like Mark who knows the process is useful, not just to find a willing buyer but to nurse the transaction along as well..”

Neil Holden

“I approached Mark with some trepidation about the sale of a cask of whisky having no idea how to sell it. Mark is eminently knowledgeable about the resale process and before long had secured a very good offer.

I was very impressed with the way Mark communicated during the process, he kept me up to date with regular calls and dealt with all the legal aspects of the sale.

Well worth a five star rating and I would not hesitate to use Mark’s services again.”

The History of Loch Lomond Distillery

Compared with most of other Scotland’s distilleries the Loch Lomond distillery is a very recent establishment. While most of the country’s whisky operations were set up during the 19th century, the Loch Lomond distillery was not constructed until the 1960s when the distillery industry took off in a big way.

The Loch Lomond distillery was constructed in 1966 as part of a joint partnership which was formed between Barton Brands, a Chicago based company, and Duncan Thomas, an American who own Littlemill. In 1971, the American company took over complete control of operations but when the whisky boom went bust in 1984 the distillery closed its doors. In 1985 it briefly passed through the hands of Inver House and then in 1986 it passed on to Glen Catrine Bonded Warehouse Ltd. In 1994 Glen Scotia was then added to the portfolio.

Glen Catrine formed the aging and bottling arm of well-established retail and blending firm Bulloch and Co, which owned the Glen’s Vodka and High Commissioner brands. Under the ownership of this company, Loch Lomond became an incredibly flexible and innovative distillery. It specialised in the export and private label business, however, and this meant that its operation was not well understood or widely reported.

In 2014, the company was sold to Exponent, a private equity firm, which had former Diageo executives at the head of its Loch Lomond Group distilling division.

Originally, the distillery had a set of pot stills that had rectifying plates in the necks. These were also called Lomond stills and enabled different streams of flavour to be produced. In 1990, another pair of stills with the same design were installed and then in 1998 two more pot stills were installed although these were in the traditional swan neck style. In 2007, one further still, an additional continuous variety, was set up in order to make grain whisky from a 100% malt barley mash.

Now two more Lomond stills are in place, giving the distillery sufficient capacity to produce no less than eleven different distillates for use in its whisky brands. Different flavours are also created using wine yeasts and the distillery’s approach has sometimes been compared to the Japanese model.

The Loch Lomond distillery produces several single malts as well as the best known High Commissioner blend. Its products include Craiglodge, Croftengea, Old Rosdhu, Inchfad, Ichmoan and Inchmurrin. All have at one time been available as independent and official bottlings, but today only a few are continuously bottled within the current whisky range.
