JULY 15, 2019 | SUSANNAH SKIVER BARTON
Make room on the fairway: There’s a new scotch coming, courtesy of pro golfer Cristie Kerr and Loch Lomond Distillery. The 48.1% ABV whisky was distilled in 2002 and matured in ex-bourbon casks at Loch Lomond, then was finished for 10 months in casks from Kerr’s St. Helena, California winery, Kerr Cellars. The finishing casks, made of French oak from the Vosges, originally held Kerr’s 2016 Sonoma Coast pinot noir, a wine that scored 94 points in Wine Spectator. Along with the whisky’s release, Loch Lomond has announced that Kerr is its newest brand ambassador.
