The Travel Retail Consortium is pleased to welcome a new member for the whisky category: The Loch Lomond Group.

The Loch Lomond Group is an independent distiller and blender of some of the finest and rarest scotch whiskies in the world, with a heritage that is amongst the oldest in its industry. Its bespoke Loch Lomond Whiskies Global Travel Retail range first went on sale in Glasgow Airport’s World Duty Free World of Whiskies store in February 2017, followed by the launch of the company’s Glen Scotia GTR range exactly one year later. September 2018 saw the group introduce its Littlemill Single Malt Scotch Whisky from Scotland’s oldest licensed distillery to the channel.

André de Almeida, Loch Lomond Group’s Managing Director – Global Travel Retail, said: “The GTR channel is an important part of Loch Lomond Group’s strategy and we are looking to continue growing and engaging within the duty free industry. On that basis, we are delighted to be joining the Travel Retail Consortium as part of that process.

“Joining the TRC provides us with the opportunity to engage more actively within the GTR channel and grow our business network with professionals from across different sectors. With so much expertise within the Consortium, we can share valuable knowledge and experience with other members and hopefully gain new insights and advice to continue growing within the industry.”

TRC’s PR Relation Manager, Rebecca Harwood-Lincoln, said: “We are delighted to welcome the Loch Lomond Group to the TRC. The company will certainly add value to the Consortium and complements the other member brands superbly. The TRC is not all just about business, we host various events throughout the year where we get to know each other and interact on a more personal level – so we definitely look forward to seeing André at our upcoming meetings and events and getting to know him better!”
