The first site of the former Loch Lomond Distillery dates back to 1814, sited at the north end of Loch Lomond near Tarbet, the closing date of this Distillery remains unclear.
The current Loch Lomond Distillery was founded in 1964 by the former owners of the Littlemill Distillery, in Bowling, a few miles up the road towards Glasgow. In 1987, Alexander Bulloch and the Glen Catrine company acquired the business and resumed malt production. Grain whisky production began in 1993 and two new malt stills were added in 1999.
At the time the Grain distillery opened, it was the only distillery in Scotland producing both Grain and Malt whisky. It also operates a unique set-up of three sets of stills.
