Who we are

We are an independent distiller, blender, and producer of some of the finest and rarest Scotch whiskies in the world, as well as a growing portfolio of other premium and super premium spirits and champagne. Our heritage is amongst the oldest in our industry.

The Loch Lomond Distillery Company has a history that goes back to at least 1772, with the founding of the Littlemill Distillery. 

In 1814, the original site of the Loch Lomond Distillery was established near Tarbet towards the northwest end of Loch Lomond. In 1832, the Glen Scotia Distillery was founded in Campbeltown and is one of only three distilleries remaining in Campbeltown from that era. 

Our portfolio includes a full range of award-winningsingle malts and several high-quality, award-winning blends. Loch Lomond Distillery was named the most awarded distillery of the year in 2023, and our Glen Scotia whiskies were recognised at the 2021 San Francisco World Spirits Competition, with Glen Scotia 25-year-old awarded ‘Best in Show’, the overall winner of the competition, and therefore, the best whisky in the world.

Our super-premium Littlemill Single Malt whisky is developing a growing international reputation and is recognised in the top tier of ultra-premium whiskies. Our portfolio has grown with the introduction of Spearhead Single Grain Whisky, Ben Lomond Gin, and Champagne Piaff. 

As our international presence continues to grow, we are delighted to be involved in several high-profile partnerships, including with the R&A for The Open Golf Championship, the Scottish Professional Football League and the Super League Rugby. Our production spans sites across Scotland, operating with Loch Lomond malt and grain distilleries at Alexandria in Dunbartonshire, Glen Scotia Distillery in Campbeltown, Argyll, and our own bottling plant in Catrine, Ayrshire. We have demonstrated a history of continual innovation and development of production capabilities to enable a degree of self-sufficiency unmatched in the industry.
