Loch Lomond Brewery is to expand into the spirits market with the launch of Dalrigh Distillery.
The new lowland distillery aims to create Dalright Scotch whiskies, Scottish gins, and rum, based in Dumbarton.
Dalrigh Distillery is readying its casks for the first malts, with 100 being put into production this year, and 50 now available for presale.
“We have been at the front of award-winning beer-making for many years now and a natural progression for the knowledge we have with barley, other grains, and yeasts is to work that into an amazing range of single grain and single malt whiskies with some interesting options for blends.
“We are looking forward to the exciting challenges that this most prestigious of products will set before us,” says Fiona MacEachern, Managing Director of Loch Lomond Brewery.
“Our base spirit will be made on site using the purest of Scottish ingredients. Many of the botanicals we use can be found around the west coast of Scotland, and there will be some slight variations in our range as we follow the flavours the seasons offer. Our rums will be made authentically too, with imported sugar cane and molasses to give a rich, deep sipping experience. Spirits of Scotland, made our way,” she adds.
