Usually found as a component of a Johnnie Walker blend, this Highland Whisky is something special—and we don’t say that lightly.

Lochnagar got its prefix "Royal" when Queen Victoria and Prince Albert visited the distillery quite some time ago. A great Highlander with a storied heritage, this Rare Malts edition is more than worthy of its royal name. Grab it while you can!

First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
Third time's the charm. Lochangar burned down twice, before getting wise and building the third and final facility next to a river.
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.
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.
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.
