Loch Lomond Distillery has followed its own path for quite some time. It has been distilling malt and grain spirit in one facility; moreover it is the only producer of “Single Blend Whisky”.
Such whisky is composed from the distillery’s column-still grain whisky and its various pot-still malt whiskies. “Single Blend” is not a category recognized by Scotch Whisky Association, even though Loch Lomond is not a member of the organization. Back in 2000 the company distilled several batches of malt and grain spirits from organic grains. 12 years later (in fact 13) some of them were blended together in 50:50 ratio to create Organic Single Blend, the one-strong whisky subcategory.
