Fred Creighton, World Duty Free Managing Director said: “We’re delighted to offer our Glasgow Airport customers the opportunity to purchase and enjoy the local Loch Lomond Whiskies’ exciting new travel exclusive range before anyone else. This very special collection is only available at the airport and it’s great to be able to offer our customers the opportunity to take a piece of Glaswegian heritage away with them, to remember their trip by.”
Glasgow Airport Commercial Director Francois Bourienne added: “It’s exciting to be the first international airport to offer Loch Lomond’s new bespoke global travel retail range. We’re also very proud to be supporting a brand based so close to Glasgow Airport on the shores of Loch Lomond, one of Scotland’s most beautiful and iconic attractions. Many of our customers will probably fly over the distillery itself – one of the whisky world’s best kept secrets.”
Loch Lomond Group Managing Director of Global Travel Retail André de Almeida said: “We’ve been keen to introduce a global travel retail range for some time now following increased demand for our Loch Lomond whiskies overseas,” said . The whiskies are available in 90 markets internationally. It means a great deal to us to offer the new range at World Duty Free in Glasgow Airport, less than 15 miles from our spiritual home in the heart of Loch Lomond – one of Scotland’s most beautiful and popular visitor destinations. We’re confident that we are offering something new and unique to the marketplace that will deliver strong sales and a sense of discovery for whisky drinkers around the world.”
