Loch Lomond Group appoints new US distributor: Foley Family Wines

Loch Lomond Group has appointed Foley Family Wines as its new U.S distributor, as it looks to build upon its growing international success.

Foley Family Wines (FFW) is a Sonoma County-based family-owned wine and spirits company. It will act as importer and distributor for the Group’s award-winning brands, via its wholesale and supplier network. The U.S. portfolio will include Loch Lomond single malt, Glen Scotia single malt, Littlemill single malt, Spearhead single grain, Ben Lomond Gin, and Champagne Piaff.

In the $15+ category, FFW currently ranks among the top 10 U.S. wine companies and is the second-fastest growing player.

Last year, Scotch accounted for 77% of Scottish food and drink exports1, with bottled blended whisky representing the biggest export subcategory by value in 2023.

In the U.S., whisky is the largest spirit category and is driving growth at 2%, outpacing total spirits by 2%. Scotch is the second largest segment within the category3.

Shawn Schiffer, Foley Family Wines President, said: “We are excited to enter the important Scotch whisky category and integrate the Loch Lomond Group brands into our expanding global spirits portfolio. The addition of these fine Scotch whiskies and premium spirits will naturally complement our super-premium and luxury wine and spirits brands as we continue to elevate our offerings to our customers and consumers.”

Loch Lomond Group CEO Colin Matthews added: “We are delighted to have entered into this partnership with Foley Family Wines. Their industry leading position, reputation for producing luxury wine and spirits, and best-in-class sales teams and distributor networks makes FFW the ideal partner for us in the U.S.”

One of only seven full-service producers of Scotch, Loch Lomond Group is an independent distiller and blender of some of the finest whiskies from Scotland’s most historic distilleries, including the Glen Scotia Distillery established in 1832, the Loch Lomond Distillery founded in 1814, and the Littlemill Distillery, the oldest licensed distillery in Scotland - registered in 1772.

In 2023, Loch Lomond Distillery was named the most-awarded distillery of the year at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Glen Scotia 25-year-old single malt was awarded ‘Best in Show’ at the same event in 2021, earning the distinction as the best whisky in the world. The Loch Lomond Group has established several key sports partnerships that help promote the brands globally as it continues to scale up successfully its international presence, including the R&A for The Open Golf Championship, the Scottish Professional Football League, and the Super League Rugby.
