Lochlea is an independent, family-owned distillery in the heart of Ayrshire. The distillery say 'Our Barley is our ongoing core single malt expression, which sits alongside our seasonal limited editions. Our master blender has carefully honed this recipe and with a combination of Bourbon, Sherry and STR casks there is a whole new level of depth and complexity to the final whisky."
The team at the distillery also say ' Forget your preconceptions about Lowland whisky, Lochlea is different. Using our own barley unique to Lochlea, nurturing a long fermentation and being meticulous with our cut points creates a new make bursting with orchard fruit and elegant beyond its years. By using our own barley grown on the farm and our on-site water source, we have full traceability over the ingredients going into our process, allowing us a higher level of quality control and creating a flavour profile unique to Lochlea. We are also the only distillery in the world who can rightfully claim that Robert Burns himself lived and worked here. He spent his formative years from 1777-1784 at Lochlea, and we are proud to work those same fields today 240 years on.'
