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.
