Earlier this year the Lost Loch Spirits team were celebrating. Their infamous Spirit School was recognised as the best tourism experience at the North East Scotland Food & Drink Awards 2020.
The judges said;
“This is a unique, immersive and hands-on visitor experience. From the hand crafted bar to the inclusion of local produce in the lunch provided. The judges felt that visitors would come away feeling they really had a great experience.”
Since launching this experience, Lost Loch welcomed an array of guests, from hen parties, old mates meeting up, to a gift from a wife to her husband. Guests have distilled their own botanical spirits, bottled and labelled them before taking them home. The team at Lost Loch can’t wait to get this up and running again once things allow. Tours and Tasting will also re-open and Lost Loch Spirits will be welcoming a new person into the business to run this.
During the summer, Lost Loch Spirits eeNoo gin was awarded a Masters Medal from The 2020 Global Spirits Masters – the world’s most highly regarded series of blind tastings competitions.
Soon after the team toasted a deal with Co-op which saw eeNoo gin available in up to 50 stores in Scotland.
Throughout 2020 Lost Loch have seen a growth in contract spirits, welcoming rum, vodka, gin and non-alcoholic creations to their contract portfolio.
They have also launched a new range, The Singular Series. These are one off single batch creations. Crafted from natural ingredients sourced from around the world, the Singular Series is an honest approach to spirits where anything can and might be created. From barrel aged Murmichan absinthe to ancient Italian liqueurs.
It’s fair to say 2020 turned out differently to what was expected but it’s been a busy one for Lost Loch & they can’t wait to see what 2021 brings.
