Lochlea Harvest Edition Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Matured in combination: Port,  Oloroso Sherry & Bourbon Casks. Aromas of stewed apples, pear drops and oat Biscuits. The palate has strawberries, violets and toasted marshmallows. The finish is signature Lochlea, cereal and fresh cut grass. Distillery Notes 

The second in an annual series of limited seasonal bottlings, Lochlea Harvest Edition reflects the end of Summer, when our golden barley is ready to be harvested and eventually used for next year's production. We've chosen a coral red label to reflect the Ayrshire soil, which changes color to a deep, sunset hue once the barley has been harvested. Distillery Notes

Lochlea– they are located in South Ayrshire, which is in the Scottish lowlands a 40 minute drive from Glasgow and an hour and a half from Edinburgh. While this may seem like an out of the way place for a distillery, it is 45 miles as the crow flies from Cambletown and 65 miles from the shores of Islay. The distillery was conceived by the current owner of Lochlea farm, Neil McGeoch, who, after getting planning commission approval in 2014, went about converting the existing farm’s centuries old buildings into a condition fit for a 21st century distillery. He was also quite smart about who he put into place for this new distillery: Malcolm Rennie, who was named as the inaugural distillery manager. He had quite a journey in Scotch whisky production before Lochlea with 30 years spent at Bruichladdich, Ardbeg and Kilchoman. Under his stewardship, the distillery was readied for its start with the first runs of the stills in 2018. Most distilleries love to talk about the source of their water and give somewhat short shrift as to the source of their barley. In the case of Lochlea, they are quite proud of the source for that most core ingredient. It all comes from the 90 hectare farm on which the distillery is located, so the distance from field to distillery is some 150 yards. Rennie chose to set up the distillery with traditional Douglas Fir wash backs and two high necked stills to preserve the spirits lightness. Michael Kennel, D&M
