Lombard Gold Label Profile
Blended Scotch Whisky
Lombard Gold Label was the first Scotch whisky brand to be released by the Isle of Man-based blender and bottler Lombard Brands in the 1970s.
Described as ‘big and chewy’ with a ‘peaty aroma’, the 40% abv blended Scotch reflects Lombard’s desire to ‘recreate the pre-war image of whisky, and re-establish traditional whisky values’.
Lombard Gold Label History
While the Lombard-Chibnall family can trace its roots in alcoholic beverages back some 300 years, it wasn’t until the mid-1960s that Lombard Brands was founded by its current CEO, Margaret Lombard-Chibnall.
Originally a supplier of bulk whisky for blenders, Lombard diversified into blending and bottling its own whiskies, the first of which was Lombard Gold Label.
With a considerable expertise in laying down commissioned single malt reserves since the 1960s, Lombard drew heavily on its own stocks to create Gold Label.
Blended Scotch initially created as an exclusive dram for Freemasons, though now widely available.
