The fields of barley at Lochlea

Up to 15% off selected Lochlea and Dalmore

The 'New Wave' meets the 'Old Guard' as we raise a toast to the ploughman poet himself, Robbie Burns. 

Celebrate Burns Night with a dram of Lochlea or Dalmore.. or both! Between now and the end of January, we're offering up to 15% off selected single malts from two of Scotland's most exciting distilleries. 

Lochlea - Burns' family home

One of the newest Lowland distilleries and a true 'barley to bottle' project. Founders Neil and Jen come from a agricultural background and, upon acquiring the farm in 2006, immediately saw the potential to grow a grain crop and produce whisky on their Ayreshire farm - thus Lochlea was born with distillery construction beginning in 2017. The farm at Lochlea was Robbie Burns' family home for many years and where he first began write his world famous poetry.

The Dalmore - pride of the Highlands

Founded in 1839 by Alexander Matheson, Dalmore is one of the Highland's most recognisable distilleries. Overlooking the Cromarty Firth, the distillery houses four pairs of stills and produces just over four millions litres of spirit a year. Almost as famous as the distillery itself is Richard Paterson, master blender for many decades, Richard has done much to popularise the Dalmore brand and Scottish whisky more broadly. 

Lochlea Ploughing Edition
HED46579 / 70cl / 46%
was £48.50

Situated in the Scottish Lowlands, Lochlea has been producing single malt whisky since 2018. The distillery is housed on a farm, which was once owned by Robert Burns’ family, and on which Burns himself actually lived and worked from 1777-1784. Ploughing Edition is inspired by winter on the farm, matured in a combination of ex-Islay barrels and peated quarter casks. It carries notes of boiled sweets, cooked apple and Brazil nuts, complemented by light peat smoke.
Lochlea Our Barley
HED46115 / 70cl / 46%
was £44.50

Lochlea is a new family-run single malt distillery that uses their own barley and natural water resources. ‘Our Barley’ is their very first expression, launched on the 25th of January 2022 to coincide with Burns Night. Bottled at 46% ABV, the whisky was matured in first-fill bourbon and Oloroso sherry casks, during which time it developed layers of vanilla and nutty flavours. Further releases from Lochlea are expected very soon.
Lochlea Harvest Edition 2nd Crop
HED46784 / 70cl / 46%
was £51.50

Lochlea Harvest Edition 2nd Crop is a limited-edition Lowland single malt whisky from the Lochlea farm and distillery in Ayrshire. Lochlea`s Harvest Edition single malt form part of a range of four seasonal releases (the others being Sowing Edition, Ploughing Edition and Fallow Edition), each inspired by the four different seasons on the Lochlea farm. The Harvest Edition 2nd Crop is a young Lowland single malt matured in a combination of Port casks, first-fill oloroso Sherry casks and first-fill Bourbon barrels.
Dalmore King Alexander III
HED3176 / 70cl / 40%
was £265

Aged in a mix of French wine barriques, Madeira and Sherry casks, Marsala barrels, Port pipes and ex-Bourbon barrels, Dalmore King Alexander III is a masterclass in blending from whisky-industry legend, Dalmore master distiller Richard Pateson. Notes of chocolate and toffee mingle on the nose, the palate is rich with a hint of sweetness before a long, balanced finish.
Dalmore 25 Year Old
HED79802 / 70cl / 42%
was £1275

Matured in American white oak ex-bourbon casks, aged Tawny Port pipes and casks, exclusive to The Dalmore, which have held 30 year old Matusalem oloroso sherry. A tropical, citrus and treacled nose, vanilla and chocolate truffles on the palate. A maple syrup and ginger evolving finish. An exceptional whisky.
Dalmore 30 Year Old 2023 Limited Release
HED47011 / 70cl / 43.8%
was £4750

This 30-year-old Dalmore has undergone maturation in bourbon barrels, receiving a final touch from select rare Port pipes. Among them, one previously housed a Graham’s 1982 single harvest Port, alongside other exceptional single harvest expressions. The aroma presents a delightful combination of dried fruits and dark chocolate, leading to a palate enriched with notes of rich mocha, succulent plums, and lively orange zest. These flavours intertwine with nutty marzipan, culminating in a finish highlighted by hints of aniseed.
