Collection Lochlea - Lowland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Lochlea was originally a cattle ranch when it was acquired in 2006. In the past, barley was grown on the farmland, mainly for animal feed. In 2015, the distillery started an experiment and planted 50 hectares of malting barley.

Working quietly, learning from mistakes, exploring the possibilities and making connections in the malting industry gave the distillery the confidence to make a big decision: to develop and operate a single malt distillery in Lochlea.

Construction work began in 2017 with the conversion of the former pigsty, barn and haystack at the heart of the farm into a distillery and the conversion of the cattle pens into bonded warehouses. After receiving all the permits, the distillery started operating in August 2018.
