At The Lost Distillery Company we believe it is a tragedy that over one hundred Scotch Whisky distilleries have been permanently closed during the last century.
Despite being renowned for their excellent quality malts, these distilleries were largely closed through the effects of war, prohibition, politics and the rise of mass production.
Archivist & Blending
Only once we find a lost distillery which made a quality malt of good reputation, do we start the archivist process.
Our head archivist spends months tirelessly researching each distillery. Reading through hundreds of historic documents, tax records and photographs to then scientifically guide a profile of how we believe each whisky would have tasted.
Every aspect of distillery life is researched, from water source to still shape, cask type and everything in between. Our whisky making team then use this to bring the flavour profile to life.
Celebrating all of Scotland’s whisky producing regions and flavour profiles.
