Lochlea 'Ploughing Edition' (Second Crop) 46% Single Malt Scotch Whisky 70cl

Default Title InStock

Lochlea Distillery rounds off their second series of annual, seasonal bottlings with the 'Ploughing Edition' (Second Crop).

Lochlea's seasonal, small-batch releases showcase their signature style in four different ways each year. As a working farm, these expressions tie in with exactly what is happening in the fields each season.

In this Ploughing Edition (Second Crop) for 2023 – the fourth in a new set of four limited editions – they have used 100% ex-Islay Barrels. The key differences from Ploughing Edition (First Crop) are the focus on solely 200-litre barrels and further ageing in their on-site warehouse.

The icy blue of the label also reflects the season, recalling the bitterly cold and frosty Ayrshire winters.

Lochlea Distillery

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.

The Lochlea Distillery Team

Of course, whisky isn't a one-man game, and John is part of a talented and committed team of experts at Lochlea who handle everything from production to PR, all headed up by the most important staff member, Indiana Bones (Indie).

Since the distillery was first commissioned in 2016, the team and their drams have gone on to win countless awards, including "Brand Innovator" and "Single Estate" at the Icons of Whisky Awards 2024 and a Gold Medal from the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2023 for their debut core expression, 'Our Barley'.

Alongside their unique, modern approach to whisky making, Lochlea is also 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.
