Loch Lomond Group were among 400 guests at the inaugural Scottish Whisky Awards which took place at The Sheraton Grand in Edinburgh last night. After being nominated in multiple categories in both the business awards and blind tasting competition, Loch Lomond Group secured wins across the board. Glen Scotia picked up one of the top awards: ‘Brand Experience of the Year’ for the Glen Scotia Grand Tour which debuted in London in 2018 before travelling to Whisky Fringe in Edinburgh, De Monnik Dranken 100 Year Celebration in the Netherlands and most recently Taipei in Taiwan. The Grand Tour brand experience was created to drive trial of Glen Scotia and raise awareness of the brand and the whisky producing region of Campbeltown. This was achieved by creating a replica of the Victorian styled distillery, including the manager’s office and dunnage warehouse and during the hour-long experience, consumers took part in tastings and conversations with whisky experts to find out more about the brand. Glen Scotia was also shortlisted for Tourism Destination of the Year and also Distillery of the Year. Loch Lomond Group also performed exceptionally well in the blind tasting competition picking up the top award and gold medals in ‘Single Malt No Age Statement’ for Glen Scotia Double Cask and ‘Blended Whisky Up To 12 Year Old’ for Clansman. Bringing the medal tally up to eight where silver medals in ‘Single Malt 12 Year Old’ for Loch Lomond 12 year old, ‘Single Malt 13-16 Year Old’ for Glen Scotia 15 Year Old and bronze in ‘Single Malt No Age Statement’ for Glen Scotia Campbeltown Harbour, ‘Blended Whisky Up To 12 Year Old’ for High Commissioner 7 Year Old and ‘Single Grain Whisky’ for Loch Lomond Single Grain. We are incredibly proud of the recognition we received from Scottish Whisky Awards and all the judges and look forward to the 2020 awards in Glasgow
