The Lochlea Distillery is situated in Tarbolton in the Scottish lowland whisky region. This Ayrshire independent distillery has been producing spirit since 2018. The estate on which the distillery sits is where Scotland’s national poet Robert Burns called home from 1777 to 1784. He also worked on the farm in his younger years. The team at Lochlea grow their own grain on the 90 hectare estate. The distillery manager is John Campbell who was a very familiar name at the Laphroaig Distillery for years.
The Harvest Second Crop is the second expression in a set of four seasonal limited edition whiskies from the Lochlea Distillery. The Harvest edition is inspired by the end of summer when the farm distillery’s barley is harvested and used for the next year’s whisky production.
The Lochlea Harvest Edition Second Crop has been matured a careful selection of casks, Tawny and Ruby Port casks, STR Barriques and first fill ex-Bourbon barrels. In this release we see more Port cask influence due to the spirit being another year older and its ability to stand up to amore intense maturation process. Bottled at 46% Alc/Vol.
