The 2016 edition of Loch Gorm is now available! Loch Gorm is located to the north of the distillery and is very dark and peaty in colour, similar to the dark rich colour of our sherry cask matured single malt.
Loch Gorm has been part of our range since it was first introduced in 2012 and is the only release matured exclusively in oloroso sherry casks.

The updated packaging for the 2016 release features stunning views over Loch Gorm, just a short distance from the distillery gates.
