In this tale of two distilleries we find the best of times.

Over the last 100 years, more than 1/2 of all of the distilleries in Scotland were abandoned. This is where the Lost Distillery Company comes in. Their logo is a Celtic triskele — an ancient symbol of life and renewal. They actually have an “archiving team” that researches extinct Whiskies based upon 10 elements of production. They use this info to reproduce Whiskies now long gone… to great effect. So far these modern alchemists have “resurrected” 6 Whiskies and we get the impression that they are not done yet.

As they noted on the Lost Distillery site, Gerston is a tale of two distilleries. The first Gerston was a small, family operation enjoyed by aficionados and elites from London to Rio and Mumbai from 1796 through 1882. The brand was scooped up by a big production company who built a grand, high-output shop that operated from 1886 through 1914 (eventually renamed Ben Morven). Both distilleries were located in the far, remote northern Highlands. The recreation of this signature spirit by Lost Distilleries is a blend of single malts “reborn” in 2013 at a proper 46% ABV.
