Loch Lomond launches expanded travel retail range

Loch Lomond Group is embarking on a ‘significant expansion’ of its GTR range with the launch of various new products for 2019. These expressions were unveiled this week at the 2018 TFWA World Exhibition and Conference. Among these releases are the Glen Scotia Vintage 1991 Single Malt Scotch Whisky and limited-edition Littlemill Vintage 1992 Single Malt Scotch Whisky, both exclusive to travellers. Distilled at one of three surviving distilleries in Campbeltown — formerly known as the Victorian capital of Scotch and one of Scotland’s five malt-producing regions, Glen Scotia Vintage 1991 Single Malt Scotch Whisky displays the brand’s signature maritime influences along with a hint of spice and smoke. It will also be the distillery’s oldest release. Littlemill Vintage 1992 Single Malt Scotch Whisky (left) is a rare and limited release from the Littlemill distillery, which is thought to be one of the oldest distilleries in Scotland, dating back to 1772. It displays a subtly floral, vanilla-rich sweetness and comes with a 5cl vial for those wishing to sample the whisky while keeping the bottle intact. Each bottle is individually numbered and comes from a small parcel of stock, consisting of three casks. Andre de Almeida, Managing Director, Global Travel Retail, Loch Lomond Group, said: “We are proud to be extending our GTR range and providing travellers with exciting new exclusive and limited-edition products to acquire and enjoy. “Importantly, we’re also extremely pleased to be offering our travel retail partners a wider choice of Loch Lomond Group brands for their shoppers to discover. Since launching our bespoke GTR Scotch whisky range just over two years ago, we’ve experienced strong demand from retailers for our brands and we’re keen to support their drive for more diversity across the channel.” To see the full range on offer from Loch Lomond Group visit: lochlomondgroup.com/brands
