Ben Lomond Gin makes its debut

Loch Lomond Group has announced the debut of Ben Lomond Gin. 

The new gin comes from a recipe that includes natural botanicals sourced from the area surrounding the iconic Scottish peak.

Encased in a statement purple bottle that is intended to capture the vibrant hues of upland heather in full bloom, Ben Lomond Gin draws its inspiration from the flora, fauna and scenery of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. 

A London Dry style gin, it features hand-picked blackcurrants and locally foraged rowan berries.

Colin Matthews, CEO of Loch Lomond Group, which produces Ben Lomond Gin, says: “We are extremely proud of our new Ben Lomond Gin. We spent a long time perfecting our recipe and crafting something unique for gin lovers to discover and enjoy. Loch Lomond and The Trossachs is renowned as one of most beautiful landscapes in the UK and our gin is inspired by this stunning area.

“From a business point of view, Ben Lomond Premium Gin is a logical extension of our portfolio of award-winning spirits. The gin trend shows no sign of abating across the UK and international markets are also developing a taste for it with exports doubling over the last 10 years. We are expecting strong demand for our Ben Lomond Gin in many markets, especially those with traditional Scottish connections.”

To help protect the scenic countryside that inspired Ben Lomond Gin the brand has entered a partnership with leading conservation charity, the John Muir Trust.

The organisation, which is dedicated to protecting and managing wild land was named after John Muir, the Scottish-American naturalist credited with founding the national park movement in the US. His legacy in turn paved the way for Scotland’s first national park, Loch Lomond and The Trossachs, where the foraged rowanberries in Ben Lomond Premium Scottish Gin grow wild.

Adam Pinder from the John Muir Trust says: “Ben Lomond Gin’s naturally occurring botanicals and exquisitely-designed bottle will help to showcase Scotland’s wonderful landscapes, while the financial support it is providing to the Trust will enable us to continue our very important job of protecting and conserving wild land across the UK.”

Ben Lomond Gin has a 43% ABV.
