Distillery Fact: Loch Lomond Distillery was built in 1965/66 by the owner of Littlemill Distillery, the American-born Duncan Thomas, and American Barton Brands. The range of stills and different peat levels means 8 different styles of malt whisky - one of which is Croftengea. A grain whisky can be produced making it self-sufficient as a blender and indeed most of the whisky made here goes into blends. Loch Lomond is the largest loch in the UK at 24 miles long, 5 miles wide and up to 600 feet deep. With 38 islands it is a well-known natural beauty and well worth a visit.
