The clans of Scotland have survived for centuries and although belonging to a clan today is quite a different experience to the one you may have had 300 or 400 years ago, many of the traditional values and feelings are the same. While the term “Clan” means family or children in Scots gaelic, not everyone in the same clan was actually related to one another. The clan structure however embodied a feeling of unity and strength, a spirit of togetherness and friendship and one which allowed the Clansmen to have control over their designated land. The spirit of kinship is reflected in our range of Loch Lomond whiskies-to be enjoyed on their own and also shared with others!
Our master blender, hand selects the casks from our reserve cellar, replicating traditional Victorian values. Each cask is chosen for its rare character and exceptional maturity. Glen Scotia Victoriana Single Malt Scotch Whisky is finished in deep charred oak, the result is an exceptionally smooth single malt whisky where the aroma and flavour work in harmony. Bottled in the traditional way straight from the cask without filtration, it’s subtle wood and vanilla flavour is enhanced by a full bodied spicy fruit aroma and mildly smokey aftertaste. This magnificent liquid is bottled at 51.5° proof.
