The Loch Lomond distillery is a Highland Single Malt Scotch whisky distillery in Alexandria, Scotland, near Loch Lomond.[1]

History[edit]

In 1965 the distillery relocated to its current premises on the site of a disused dyeing plant. It changed hands in 1987 and underwent a renovation by its new owners, acquiring a Coffey still in 1993 in order to produce grain whisky.[2]

In recent times the distillery has become a tourist attraction due to its association with the Tintin comics and features an original whisky tank wagon from the steam age painted in an authentic black and yellow livery derived from the freight train in Hergé's book.[2]

Products[edit]

Loch Lomond's current single malts include the original Loch Lomond, Inchmurrin and Old Roshdhu. Lesser known products include Loch Lomond HP, Craiglodge, Croftengea, Glen Douglas and Inchmoan.[2] Additionally Loch Lomond produces several blends: Loch Lomond Single Blend, High Commissioner Blended Whisky and Scots Earl blended whisky.[2]

Fictional depiction[edit]

Loch Lomond is also the brand name of the Scotch whisky drunk by Captain Haddock in Hergé's famous comic book series The Adventures of Tintin.
