“Some of the new Scotch distilleries popping up are truly incredible and Lochlea is one of my favourites! It was also made by the legendary John Campbell the distiller who made the Harvey Nichols Peated Burgundy Cask Single Barrel English Whisky.” – Nick Larsson-Bell Retail Buyer of the Year 2022

Lochlea’s Fallow Edition First Crop is the highly anticipated follow-up to their Sowing and Harvest Editions both released earlier in 2022. The purple label reflects a more autumnal shift in the style of the whisky and the moodier skies over the farm at this quieter time of year. While creating their Our Barley Scotch the team at Lochlea uncovered a few wonderful Sherry butts. They were so good they couldn’t bear to blend them so decided to showcase them in the Fallow Edition instead. This Lowland Scotch was crafted using their own homegrown barley but also an on-site water supply and specially chosen yeasts to accentuate the local terroir. Matured entirely in first-fill Oloroso Sherry casks it has been bottled without colouring and non-chill filtered. 

The recipe was carefully honed by John Campbell the ex-Laphroaig Distiller Manager and therefore an extremely safe pair of hands. Lochlea’s new make spirit bursts with orchard fruit and cereal character so there’s lots of apple pie pear drop oatcake malted milk biscuit and dry hay notes. However the Oloroso Sherry influence has layered a deep colour into this Scotch as well as flavours of fruitcake banana bread and fig roll. Although exceptional at any time we can’t wait to sip this warming dram over the colder months and the run-up to the holiday season. 

Lochlea was a livestock farm when it was acquired in 2006. The piggery became the distillery the cattle sheds were turned into bonded warehouses and the pasture was converted to barley fields. It’s a site rich in history as the celebrated Scottish poet Robert Burns lived at Lochlea Farm between 1777 and 1784 no doubt toiling over the same soil that this fiercely independent family-owned distillery now does. As Rabbie famously wrote “Freedom an’ whisky gang thegither.” So raise a dram to a new free spirit from Scotland.
