Ben Lomond Gin makes first move into low and no-alcohol expressions for 152nd Open


Ben Lomond Gin is making the brand’s first foray into the world of low and no-alcohol expressions with the launch of their new non-alcoholic botanical spirit (<0.5% ABV) debuting at The 152nd Open at Royal Troon. Pouring across the bars at The Open, visitors can be the first to try non-alcoholic gin as the famous golf tournament returns to Scotland.

While the essence of Ben Lomond Scottish Gin has been added to the base of the non-alcoholic alternative, the product has its own unique flavour profile,   maintaining its citrus and juniper focused flavour profile , it adds the flavours from the natural distillates and extracts used in its creation.

John Grieveson, Chief Marketing Officer of Ben Lomond Gin owner Loch Lomond Group, said, “Over the last few years, we’ve seen the trend towards more mindful consumption increasing. However, this doesn’t mean consumers should have to compromise on quality or taste.

“Ben Lomond Gin has always been passionate about giving people the freedom to explore, to drink wherever and however they choose. Our Non-Alcoholic Botanical Spirit is a delicious non-alcoholic gin alternative to be savoured anywhere you choose, ensuring you can fully embrace everyday adventure.

“We’re excited to debut this elevated option to the low and no-alcohol category at The 152nd Open at Royal Troon, where we look forward to hearing what gin enthusiasts and golf fans think of our new creation.”

The brand was named the first Official Gin of the Open in 2023, releasing a limited-edition gin to celebrate The 151st Open Championship at Royal Liverpool. This year, it also brings The Open 2024 Special Edition (43% ABV) which has taken inspiration from the wild and natural style of the course and includes native botanicals hand-picked directly from Royal Troon itself: tansy herb, elderberries and blackberry leaves.

Launched in 2019, Ben Lomond Gin was recently awarded a Double Gold for its Original Scottish Gin at this year’s San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
