A series of golf-themed whiskies have been teed up to mark Father’s Day.
Loch Lomond Whiskies, The Spirit of The Open, entered a five-year partnership with The Open, golf’s original championship, in 2018.
To celebrate, it has crafted a selection of highly collectible single malt gifting options that will help Father’s Day go with a swing.
The range includes a new luxury gift pack centred on its limited edition release Loch Lomond Open Special Edition 2019 – Distiller’s Cut.
The expression, created in tribute to Royal Portrush, where the 148th Open is being held, also showcases the innovative approach to distilling pioneered at Loch Lomond Distillery which is renowned for its unique still formation, extra-long fermentation and careful cask management at its onsite cooperage.
A gift from Loch Lomond Whiskies’ golf-inspired collection is the perfect way to show dad how much he means on Sunday 18 June.

Presented in a distinctive green golf-inspired box bearing Monty’s signature this limited edition release would be a proud addition to any whisky collection and the ideal gift for Father’s Day.

Loch Lomond The Open Course Collection Royal Portrush – £160
Commemorating the 148th Open Championship, which is returning to Northern Ireland after a near 70-year absence, this 19-year-old single malt was crafted in partnership with Loch Lomond Whiskies’ ambassador Darren Clarke, who has won 21 tournaments internationally including the 2011 Open Championship at Royal St George’s in England.
A beautifully balanced single malt that is rich in honey sweetness, this expression was created from specially selected casks that capture the fruit character achieved by Loch Lomond’s innovative straight neck stills. Matured in American Oak casks, the liquid was finished in claret casks as an homage to the famous Open trophy, developing a stunning rose colour as a result.
The release’s rich green packaging, which is signed by Clarke, depicts a map of the Royal Portrush course in the centre, creating what is set to be a highly prized collector’s item coveted by dads all over the world.
