Lochlea Distillery is launching the first release in an annual limited edition series of whiskies inspired by the changing seasons at Lochlea Farm.
Sowing Edition is the second release from Lochloa and will be available from 21 March 2022. Later in the year, the range of seasonal small batches will expand to include summer’s Harvest Edition, Fallow Edition in Autumn and finally Ploughing Edition in winter. The core release will also be launched mid-2022.
Each expression will connect with what is happening on site at that time of year, through the casks selected, flavour profile and even packaging. As with all Lochlea bottlings, they will be created using barley grown on the Ayrshire farm and their own water source.
John Campbell, Lochlea Production Director and Master Blender, said: “Sowing Edition is a perfect springtime whisky with green apple skins, pear drops and custard creams on the nose; vanilla sweetness, orchard fruits and hazelnuts on the palette with a final fruity sweetness lasting to the finish.
“Made from barley grown within sight of the distillery, Lochlea Whisky is an Ayrshire dram through and through.”
Bottled at 48%, the single malt whisky was matured in 100% first-fill Bourbon. It is bottled naturally with no added colouring and is non-chill-filtered.
Lochlea Sowing Edition will be available from whisky and spirits shops around the UK and in 10 export markets. For full stockists list click here.
