The Lost Distillery Stratheden Blended Malt Scotch Whisky


SKU 18265


Stratheden is the second release from The Lost Distillery Company. Closed due to the impact of prohibition in 1926, the distillery buildings still exist (in part) today with some original markings on the walls and doors hinting at its glorious past. Indeed, the colour we've selected for the label of The Lost Distillery Stratheden matches the colour of the warehouse doors that can still be seen to this day. Stratheden was also known as Auchtermuchty towards the end of its distilling life. It was owned by the Bonthrone family, who had been significant local brewers and maltsters in the area, dating as far back as 1600. The founder of the distillery was Alexander Bonthrone who reputedly distilled until his death in 1890. At 92 years old he became the oldest distiller in Scotland. His whisky was reputed to be 'one of the best.' One of the key attributes of this whisky was its unparalleled water source, known locally as the 'Lovers Pool'. It took three years to carve an aqueduct in solid granite to channel crystal clear water from the Lovers Pool to Stratheden Distillery's three water wheels. The water powered the entire site as well as contributing to the whisky's unique character. The great whisky explorer, Alfred Barnard, described it thus: 'It is splendid water, and as pure and sparkling as crystal.' Who are we to disagree?
