THE RESPONSIBILITY AT LOCH LOMOND DISTILLERY FALLS ON OUR MASTER BLENDER MICHAEL HENRY. GROWING UP NEXT TO TWO DISTILLERIES, MICHAEL DEVELOPED A PASSION FOR DISTILLING AND BREWING AT AN EARLY AGE WHICH IS WHY HE WENT ON TO STUDY THIS AT HERIOT-WATT UNIVERSITY.
MICHAEL HAS CREATED A SELECTION OF SINGLE MALT, SINGLE GRAIN AND DELUXE BLENDED WHISKIES WHICH COLLECTIVELY DELIVER A UNIQUE CHARACTER AND FLAVOUR TO OUR RANGE OF HIGHLAND SCOTCH WHISKIES.
After graduating, Michael worked in brewing for ten years until joining Loch Lomond Distillery in 2007 where he has been at the helm as Master Blender since 2014.
Michael explains: “Although Loch Lomond Group has a small team it has a large capability for what can be done. We understand the distilling process so intrinsically we can vary this to achieve the exact flavour we want before the whisky enters the cask. As we are in control of the process at every stage we have a real opportunity to shape the whisky.”
“IT IS AN HONOUR TO BE ABLE TO CREATE A PRODUCT THAT PLAYS SUCH A KEY PART IN PEOPLE’S SIGNIFICANT MILESTONES”
