The Lost Distillery Files: Lossit Distillery

Scott Watson and Brian Woods left Diageo and took up a noble cause: finding long lost orphaned Whiskies and giving them a home. The Lost Distillery Company aims to re-create contemporary artisinal blends without compromising authenticity. The project was launched by the Whisky entrepreneurs in 2013.

When given a second chance at life, these Whiskies go through a very thorough and methodical three step process that abides by 10 key components, to ensure that the quality and authenticity of the original spirit remains un-compromised. These guys definitely do their research. They even have their own archiving team led by a professor from the University of Glasgow, Michael Moss. They strive to recreate the Whisky just as they would have been years ago.

So hop in their Whisky time machine and take a trip to The Lossit Distillery. ‘The only manufacture is distilling, which is carried on to a considerable extent in this island. There are three distilleries in the parish, – Lossit, Tallant, and Bowmore, producing above 60,000 gallons among them. The Whisky of this island being very much famed for its fine quality, commands the highest price in the market.’ The Statistical Account of Scotland 1834-1847; Killarow & Kilmeny.

Founded by Malcolm McNeill —a prominent farmer-distiller in 1817— near Port Askaig, Lossit started off as the biggest producer of Whisky on Islay until they closed in 1867. They used, pure oak and ex-Sherry casks. The Sherry casks infused a sweet, zesty fruit flavor into the aging spirit. The Lost distillery’s Lossit blended malt is heavily peated and infused with floral notes from the bere barley.

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.
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
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.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
