Loch Ness Brewery
The Loch Ness Brewing Company was first created adjacent to the shores of the mysterious stretch of water and home to the world’s most infamous monster – “Nessie”.
In late 2016 The Loch Ness Beer brand was rescued by a partnership between two well established Highland businesses - Cobbs Group Loch Ness and Cairngorm Brewery. The brand which won the “Best Branding/Design” award at the UK Beer marketing awards is now firmly in safe hands.
Loch Ness Brewing Company (not Loch Ness Brewery) went into liquidation earlier in 2016 resulting in a number of job losses in the village of Drumnadrochit, Loch Ness.
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.
Loch Ness Beer was back on the shelves before Nessie had a chance to make her next appearance!
