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 Our Barley expression is the first in the core range products from the distillery. This follows on from the distilleries first Single Malt release. The whisky is matured in a combination of ex-bourbon and ex-Oloroso sherry casks, as well as shaved, toasted and re-charred barriques, the whisky was bottled without any added colour, or chillfiltration. It is very impressive for something so young.
