Independent distiller, Loch Lomond has underscored its commitment to the duty-free channel with the unveiling of a new, dedicated travel retail exclusive range for its single malt whisky brand Loch Lomond.

The Remarkable Stills Collection features four distinct non chill-filtered whiskies, each intricately crafted to embody key elements of Loch Lomond’s whisky philosophy. Produced from spirit drawn from a variety of stills at precise moments and matured in unusual oak casks from across the globe, the whiskies offer a diverse range of flavour profiles. Master Blender Michael Henry, renowned for his expertise in blending whiskies with nuanced notes of fruit, honey, and soft smoke, has curated this collection, leveraging the distinctive capabilities of Loch Lomond’s remarkable stills.

Loch Lomond uses both straight neck and traditional swan neck stills to distil its whiskies. The straight neck stills are unique to the distillery and the remarkable shape allows greater control of distillation which intensifies the lighter, fruitier character of the spirit, resulting in lighter, fruitier whiskies. Loch Lomond also uses still head cooling which alters the fruit and floral character of the spirit coming off the still as well as a long fermentation process which gives the whiskies their distinctive flavour.

The range includes Remarkable Origins, Remarkable Alchemy, Remarkable Ingenuity 13 Year Old, and Remarkable Copper. The Remarkable Origins captures Loch Lomond’s signature style with lighter citrus and orchard fruit notes, finished in American Oak casks. Presented in a 1-litre size, it has an ABV of 46.1%. Remarkable Alchemy has an ABV of 46.8% and is finished in intriguing Colombian oak casks. Also available in a 1-litre bottle, the whisky combines lighter citrus and orchard fruit notes with a distinct smokiness. Remarkable Ingenuity 13 Year Old (47.3% ABV) unites spirit drawn from both the straight neck and swan neck stills, and is finished in Swedish oak casks. Available in a 1-litre size, the single malt celebrates the distillery’s style but adds a distinctive layer from the finish with a peppery and nutmeg influence.

Remarkable Copper, the pinnacle of the collection, is created from liquid distilled in both straight neck and swan neck stills and utilises Loch Lomond’s full distillation capability. The exceptional flavours in this whisky are imagined through a range of distillates, with varying strengths and ages. Matured in ex-bourbon casks, the single malt offers exotic aromas and flavours of tropical fruit and vanilla syrup. At 48.1% ABV, the whisky comes in a 70cl premium bottle with a branded coin and bespoke ridged box.

Luke Maga, Loch Lomond Group Managing Director – Global Travel Retail, commented: “The launch of the Loch Lomond Remarkable Stills Collection is a pivotal moment for the brand, presenting a new and unique opportunity to engage with discerning whisky enthusiasts in global travel retail. Embodying the fusion of tradition and innovation, the collection offers travellers an unforgettable taste of Loch Lomond’s unparalleled quality and we’re excited to see it roll out in the channel later this year.”

The Remarkable Stills Collection will launch exclusively in travel retail in key locations worldwide at the end of August.
