Glen Scotia gets UK airport listings

Loch Lomond Group’s Glen Scotia has gained listings at 22 airports across the UK in partnership with World Duty Free.

Two global travel retail exclusive expressions; Glen Scotia 1832 Campbeltown and Glen Scotia 16 Year Old will be available in World Duty Free’s World of Whiskies stores from February.

André de Almeida, managing director of global travel retail at Loch Lomond Group, said: “The launch forms part of our ambitious worldwide roll-out of our GTR range and marks a significant milestone for Glen Scotia, as it’s the first time the brand will be available in airports right across the UK.”

Glen Scotia 1832 Campbeltown is said to be a unique single malt whisky with a balanced peated character, while Glen Scotia 16 Year Old is a single malt whisky which claims to deliver hints of vanilla oak, interwoven with notes of sea spray and spicy aromatic fruits.

The Glen Scotia distillery, founded in 1832, is one of just three surviving distilleries in Campbeltown and the latest partnership with World Duty Free follows the release of its 26-year-old Glen Scotia Single Cask at Edinburgh Airport last year.
