New Limited Edition Release From Lochlea Distillery


About Lochlea Distillery

Before it became a distillery, Lochlea was a 222-acre cattle farm when the owners acquired it in 2006. Barley had historically been grown on the farm land, largely as livestock feed, so in 2015 they began an experiment, growing 50 acres of malting barley.

The land at Lochlea is important, and not just to the distinctive taste of the whisky. This was the land that Robert Burns tended when he lived at Lochlea Farm, inspiring his thinking and development as a poet. Burns toiled the same soil that they are privileged to grow their malting barley in today.

Working away quietly, exploring the possibilities and making contacts in the malting industry gave them the confidence to make a big decision: to develop and operate a single malt distillery at Lochlea.

Construction got underway in 2017, converting the former piggery, byre and midden in the heart of the farm steading into the distillery, and repurposing the cattle sheds into bonded warehouses. Licences were secured in 2018, and the distillery was commissioned in August 2018.

Lochlea 'Fallow Edition' (First Crop)

Lochlea ‘Fallow Edition’ (First Crop) is the third limited seasonal release from the Lochlea Distillery, located in South Ayrshire.

This bottling is the first Lochlea whisky to be matured in 100% ex-Oloroso Sherry butts. Lochlea ‘Fallow Edition’ is a beautifully warming and indulgent whisky, perfectly suited to the autumnal months.

Open the bottle to a comforting nose of freshly baked banana bread and luscious ripe berries, which develop into darker, dried fruits on the palate.

Enjoy accompanying flavours of cinnamon, leather and malt biscuits, with delicate hints of aniseed, rose petals and chocolate on the finish.

Lochlea ‘Fallow Edition’ sits at 46% ABV and is non chill-filtered with no added colouring. The rich purple label has been chosen to reflect the crisp, purple leaves that cover the ground as the temperatures begin to fall.
