Loch Lomond releases two products for the 151st Open tournament

Loch Lomond, a renowned distillery in the Highlands, celebrates the 151st Open at Royal Liverpool, the most famous golf tournament in the world, which attracts players from all over the world who, this year, will start competing from next July. For the occasion, Loch Lomond has released two limited editions.

Loch Lomond The Open Special Edition 2023 is a single malt born from the collaboration between Michael Henry (master blender of the distillery) and Colin Montgomerie. After being aged in American oak barrels, the distillate is subjected to finishing in Roja Alta Reserva barrels, a Spanish red wine. It is then bottled, without cold filtration, at 92 proof (46% ABV). It is already available in shops and on the official Loch Lomond website in the classic 750ml bottle (£45) and the gift set with two screen-printed tumblers (£50).

The Loch Lomond The Open Course Collection Royal Liverpool (2023) is a single malt made by Michael Henry, who decided to use predominantly non-peated organic barley. Subsequently, the distillate was obtained from the combined use of “Straight Neck” pot still stills and the more traditional “Swan Ceck” stills. The distillate thus obtained was then left to rest in organic American oak barrels for 22 years. The final result is not cold filtered or color rectified, to be bottled at 96.4 proof (48.2% ABV). This version is also available now, including on the official Loch Lomond website, for £240.
