Before Ben Lomond was a Gin, it was a mountain.
But more than a mountain it was a meeting point.
A place where East met West and land met sky.
Derived from the Celtic word Lumon Ben Lomond means
“THE BEACON MOUNTAIN”
Historically a burning fire atop would have guided people from the four corners of Scotland and beyond. Those curious enough to make it to the summit will have been rewarded; unlocking horizons for further adventure.
This sense of adventure is what we channel in our gin. Our beacon will guide you so far, but beyond that is the freedom to drink wherever and however you choose; be that somewhere familiar with a classic or off grid with something new, there are no wrong routes. Look around, be inspired. All paths are there to be trodden.
So, fill your glass and journey on.
BEN LOMOND GAVE US AN ADVENTUROUS SPIRIT.
WE BOTTLED IT.
OUR ROBUST AND VERSATILE LONDON DRY
300 years ago, a burning beacon atop of Ben Lomond guided people across the land. Travelling varied rich landscapes from the four corners of Scotland and beyond. On their adventures they would have experienced ever changing sites, sounds and sensations. We channel this sense of adventure and variety in our core Ben Lomond gin today.
Distilled as a classic London Dry, at a punchy 43% ABV, we illuminate the gin with 11 botanicals, creating the perfect balance of fruit, floral, citrus, spice, earth and juniper. Affording you the opportunity to venture through a world of flavours, serves and garnishes however and wherever you choose
A robust and versatile gin, with Ben Lomond Original there’s something to discover in every bottle.
Our gin has been created to spotlight this most iconic mountain, as well as Scotland's stunningly beautiful Loch Lomond.
One of the great joys of gin is that there are so many different ways you can bring flavour to life. Different stills, different botanicals, different finishes and flavours each designed to accent that gins particular “flavour”.
However, when we make Ben Lomond we’re not trying to accent one particular flavour, rather we’re distilling a wonderful balance of juniper, citrus, spice, earthy and floral tones.
The best way to do that. Go all in. The perfect amount of each botanical is added all together, at the start of distilling process. The door is closed, and the stills work their magic. It’s not about nuance for us it’s about balance.
Distilling versatility in the gin that allows you to explore.
Our 11 key botanicals are weighed out by hand before every distillation; this includes a combination of both fresh and dried botanicals.
