  • Lochlea - Lowland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

    The Lochlea Distillery is located in Ayrshire, Scotland, and was founded in 2014. It is situated on the historic Lochlea Farm, which was once farmed by the famous Scottish poet Robert Burns. The distillery was initiated by Neil and Jen McGeachie and follows a sustainable approach, utilizing local resources and growing its own barley. Production began in 2018, with the first release in 2022.

    Lochlea is known for its innovative and seasonal releases. Popular editions include the "Sowing Edition," the "Harvest Edition," and the "Ploughing Edition." These whiskies reflect the seasons, each offering a unique flavor profile. For example, the "Sowing Edition" features notes of green apple peel, pear drops, and vanilla, while the "Harvest Edition" offers rich fruit notes from a combination of Port, Oloroso Sherry, and Bourbon casks.

    The typical flavor profile of Lochlea whiskies is fruity and balanced, often with notes of vanilla, caramel, and light spices, achieved through the use of various cask types. The whiskies mature in a mix of Bourbon, Sherry, and wine casks, contributing to their complexity and depth.

    Lochlea Distillery places great emphasis on quality and sustainability and has quickly made a name for itself in the whisky world. Despite its young history, it has established a strong reputation among Scottish distilleries through its high-quality products and commitment to traditional and sustainable production methods.
