Loch Ewe Distillery stands on the Drumchork Estate, in Wester Ross by the Drumchork Lodge Hotel.

John Clotworthy, a proprietor of the Drumchork Hotel in Aultbea, is also a Scottish Licensed Trade Association Whisky Ambassador. He made his dream come true, by setting 2 alembic pot stills in a cave like area, within his hotel.

Production in Loch Ewe Distillery can be reffered to as microscopic scaled production. 600 liters per year is achievable in hypothetical calculations, but the real amount is much less than that. The distillery has 2 small pot stills of 120 liter capacity, and every step of production is done by hand.

Loch Ewe uses the old fashioned method to check for feints & foreshots, as it does not have a spirit safe. The distillery uses 2,3 and 4 gallons sized casks, with another 5 liter cask left maturing for visitors. They have 3 big casks for themselves, 2 in the warehouse and one in the Uisge Beatha Lounge.
