The Loch Ness Beer brand has been rescued by two well established Highland businesses – Cobbs Group Loch Ness and Cairngorm Brewery.

The original owner Loch Ness Brewing Company went into liquidation earlier this year resulting in a number of job losses in the village of Drumnadrochit, Loch Ness but as the brand had been developed over the last few years and had gained a number of high-profile contracts and had also been in partnership with Cobbs Bakery to develop a new beer made from Cobbs scones called ”Beer Today Scone Tomorrow”, which unfortunately failed to reach the shelves after the brewery was put into administration before the beer was dispatched!

The award-winning Cairngorm Brewery who previously bottled beer for Loch Ness Brewing Company, felt that the brand was too important to lose and the partnership with Loch Ness based Cobbs made complete sense.

Rory Cameron, Managing Director of Cobbs Bakery and Sam Faircliff, Managing Director of Cairngorm Brewery decided to pool resources and rescue the brand to ensure it continued as a strong Highland craft beer brand.
