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.

Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
