At Loch Lomond Whiskies we strive to explore new depths of flavours, pushing the boundaries of our whisky making capabilities and elevating the already remarkable nature of our spirits.
Our Remarkable Makers series sees us expand our search for innovation and adeptness in particular crafts by partnering with like-minded creators, makers and craftspeople from different industries to inspire our future endeavour.
The Remarkable Makers series will see masters from the worlds of food and drink, engineering, craftwork and science come together to share their knowledge, journey and aspirations.
In the first of our Remarkable Makers series, we have partnered with London-based baker, Bread Ahead, to explore the parallels of whisky and bread making – two age old crafts that use simple ingredients to create maximum flavour.
Founded in 2013 and based in London’s vibrant Borough Market, the hugely popular bakery Bread Ahead has become a destination for both Londoners and food lovers from across the globe.
We’ve worked with the team at Bread Ahead to showcase the journey they take to craft their beautiful artisanal bread, to help inspire a new appreciation for the importance of both ingredients and process. Our partnership explains the role of yeast in the whisky-making process and uncovers the story of our new Distillery Edition, which has been crafted using chardonnay wine yeast, an unusual and innovative ingredient in the world of whisky-making.
The first release in our new Distillery Edition series is a 9-Year-Old Single Cask Malt Whisky, originally distilled in 2010 and bottled in 2020. Produced using Chardonnay Wine Yeast in the fermentation process, this rare expression has been distilled in our unique Straight Neck Stills and matured in American Oak casks for a truly unique and undeniably delicious flavour.
