Lochlea Cask Strength Batch 1 60.1% Single Malt Scotch Whisky 70cl - May 2023 Release
Lochlea Cask Strength Batch 1 is the first in a series of annual limited-edition bottlings. Each batch will be bottled straight from the casks without water, like trying samples from the warehouse itself!
Master Blender John Campbell and the team at Lochlea have chosen Bourbon and Sherry casks this time, and every year will show further progression of our whisky.
Despite the very limited volume available - just 15,000 bottles globally - the few who manage to secure a bottle will experience a true, undiluted and unfiltered window into Lochlea whisky.
No colouring and non-chill filtered.
Fun fact: the pattern running across the Lochlea bottle actually represents tractor tyre tracks!

Released: May 2023
Availability: 15,000 bottles globally

Palate: Signature Lochlea fruit, Brazil nuts

Lochlea is an independently-owned distillery under the management of ex-Laphroaig Distillery Manager John Campbell. Having built up one of the top ten Scotch brands in the world over the past 27 years, John brings a wealth of knowledge and a burning ambition to help Lochlea fulfil its potential.
Rooted in Scottish history, Robert Burns called Lochlea his home throughout his formative years, from 1777 through until his father’s death in 1784. By day, Burns worked hard on the farm, and in the evening, he enjoyed the company of his friends, debating at the Bachelors Club in nearby Tarbolton. This location has inspired the honest, passionate and progressive nature of Lochlea whisky.
