Loch Lomond 50 Years Old 70cl 46.2°
This exclusive release is the oldest and rarest Loch Lomond single malt ever unveiled and only 60 bottles have been produced for the privileged few.
Loch Lomond has selected Le Comptoir Irlandais to present in exclusivity in France this whisky with two unique bottles.
The Loch Lomond 50 Year Old is an exceptionally rare single malt. Distilled on 19th of November 1967 with Scotland’s finest ingredients exclusively in straight neck stills of the distillery, this stunning single malt, coming from a single cask is enormously rich in character. Matured in American oak hogshead for 31 years, the spirit was then re-casked in 1998 in European oak hogshead and laid to rest for a further 19 years. Bottled at 46.2% abv, the marriage of the American and European oak has created a whisky brimming with rich oak spice and tropical fruit, naturally deep amber in colour with beautiful clarity.
Befitting of our stunning surroundings, this Single Malt takes pride of place at the pinnacle of Loch Lomond’s collection. The Master Blender, Michael Henry has expertly crafted a Scotch whisky which exudes rich oak spice and tropical fruit.
The Tempest Chest designed by Method, a Scottish design studio and luxury artisan workshop, creates the perfect setting for a very unique whisky. The intricacy and detailing involved in handcrafting each individual chest and decanter means every edition is truly one of a kind.

Founded in 1965 in an old dyeing facility, Loch Lomond took over the name of its predecessor located on the other side of the Loch, in Arrochar, and which closed in 1817. As the Loch Lomond distillery closed in 1984, it could only reopen in 1985 as the Bulloch family bought it back to deal with shortages in their Glen Catrine company.
The distillery has the specificity, unique to Scotland, to produce malt whisky and grain whisky on the same site. Loch Lomond is also known to be the favourite whisky of Captain Haddock, in the Tintin’s Adventures comic book.
