The Lost Distillery Company
Blended Malt Scotch Whisky
The Lost Distillery Company’s aim is to create present day expressions of long lost whiskies. Over the past 100 years, the Scottish whisky industry has lost an incredible number of first-rate distilleries. Whether they closed because of politics, war, accidents, or oversupply, there are many whiskies that have been simply lost to time, until now.
About The Lost Distillery Company
From the local water source, to the barley, yeast, the distilleries equipment, there is a huge amount of specificity that goes into the production of malt whisky. The archivists at The Lost Distillery Company go through each of these details with a keen eye for detail, working tirelessly to bring one of these lost whiskies to life at a time. These bottles give an amazing insight into the history of lost distilleries from across Scotland’s regions — and drinking them is much more fun than any history lesson that we’ve been part of.
