Stratheden lives again… with a warmth and character the world hasn’t seen since 1926.  
 
Over the last 100 years, more than 1/2 of all of the distilleries in Scotland were closed and 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 they have “resurrected” 6 Whiskies and we get the impression that they are not done yet. 
 
Stratheden Distillery was originally born in 1829 in the town of Auchtermuchty in Fife in the southern Highlands. Three generations of the Bonthrone family served up their spirit until the great dark era of Prohibition put an end to their dreams in 1926. 
 
Lost Distillery Company has faithfully reproduced this signature spirit. And that includes using Orkney peat to toast the barley — very unusual for a Highlander. So although this is definitely not a smoky Islay in character, it does have a sea-salt quality that is more typical of Whiskies made by the seashore. The word “unique” is tossed around far too often, but this dram deserves it.

Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
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.
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).
