CROFTENGEA

Croftengea is a single malt Scotch whisky – one of a large number of spirit types made at the highly versatile Loch Lomond distillery.

These spirits span various cut points, yeast types and peating levels, with Croftengea sitting at the heavily peated end of the spectrum – indeed the distillery says this is its most heavily peated whisky.

Like fellow single malts Glen Douglas and Craiglodge, the main role of the Croftengea spirit is to add complexity to Loch Lomond’s blends, although all three have had limited releases in their own name.


PRODUCED AT
Loch Lomond


Since it opened in 1966, the Loch Lomond distillery at Alexandria in Dunbartonshire has evolved and expanded to encompass a variety of still types, including conventional pot stills, pot stills with rectifying plates in their necks (Lomond stills) and continuous stills to produce grain spirit.

The result is at least 11 different distillates, of which Croftengea is a heavily peated single malt primarily used as a blending component.

However, alongside sibling malts Glen Douglas and Craiglodge, Croftengea enjoyed a brief time in the spotlight during the mid-2000s as part of the Loch Lomond Distillery Select range of single cask releases.

Croftengea first surfaced in its own right in 2004, and a nine-year-old bottling (distilled in 1996) was launched in 2006. There are currently no plans for further releases.
