Inchfad Profile

Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Inchfad gets its name from an island in the south-east of Loch Lomond, which is home to a ruined distillery. It enjoyed a short-lived release as one of a number of single cask bottlings released by the Loch Lomond distillery in the mid-2000s.

Heavily peated in style, youthful Inchfad is described as embodying soft fruit and malty notes with a hint of smoke when matured in ex-Bourbon casks.

The distillery now only uses the name internally for one of the many spirit types produced at the multi-functional plant.

Inchfad History

The versatile Loch Lomond distillery has been home to a dizzying array of still types and production techniques since its opening in 1966. This philosophy has led to Loch Lomond becoming a self-sufficient whisky production centre – making grain as well as malt – and has allowed it to produce a large number of spirit styles.

Inchfad was released as a single cask single malt under the Distillery Select banner in the mid-2000s, alongside other Loch Lomond malts including Craiglodge and Croftengea. The release was short-lived, and nothing has been released under the Inchfad name for several years now.

However, Inchfad is also used by Loch Lomond to classify one of the many spirit types produced at the distillery, which continues to be used for blending purposes.
