Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Founded in 2019, Lochlea is located on a farm in Ayrshire - making whisky with a focus on the land.
Based in the heart of Burns Country, Lochlea distillery opened in 2018 on the very farm that Rabbie Burns lived and worked on from 1777 to 1784. By growing their own barley and utilising their on-site water source, they have full traceability over the ingredients going into their process – allowing a greater control over their unique flavour profile.
Lochlea released their first expression in 2022: Lochlea Single Malt First Release.
