Loch Ness Water is suitable as a premium table water or as the perfect serve for malt whisky. By adding a few drops to a whisky, you can open up different, new and subtle flavours that you previously had not experienced. This is especially true when drinking cask strength whiskies that have higher alcohol levels (these can be up to and over 60%ABV in some cases).
With cask strength whisky the alcohol and resulting burning sensation can overpower even the most prominent flavours. By adding some water, this dilutes the alcohol and reduces its effect, giving both the prominent and more subtle flavours a chance to shine.
"No to ice (it closes down the aroma); yes to water (it opens up the aroma and makes it easier to taste the whisky). How much water depends on you and how strong the sample is,” Charles MacLean, whisky expert and craft beer clan clansman.
Loch Ness Water is sourced directly from the world famous body of water, Loch Ness, then prepared and bottled in the Scottish Highlands. Loch Ness (Scottish Gaelic – Loch Nis) is a deep, freshwater loch and is the largest by water volume in Scotland. Created from the last Ice Age around 10,000 years ago, it sits on the Great Glen Fault, which runs from Inverness in the north to Fort William in the south. Inverness, the capital city of the Highlands, stands at the mouth of the River Ness which leads out of the loch.
Home to the legend of the Loch Ness Monster, affectionately known as "Nessie", it remains as prevalent today as it has since the story of the very first sighting in 565 AD by St Columba. The Clan Grant of Glen Urquhart and Glen Moriston are associated with the Castle Urquhart which overlooks Loch Ness at the very spot where the Monster is often claimed to have been sighted.
Loch Ness Water means you can own a little piece of the loch for yourself and ponder on whether “Nessie” swam through your own bottle of Loch Ness Water. Genuine, drinkable, Loch Ness bottled water stands proudly alone from the many other types of bottled water available due to the uniqueness of where the water is sourced. Extracted straight from the famous loch itself, the water is then prepared and bottled in the Scottish Highlands.
Loch Ness Water, still and sparkling, is available in 100m, 350ml and 750ml glass bottles.
