Analysis

The Lost Distillery Co. has a very cool and ambitious mission — recreate Whiskies from long-lost Scottish distilleries. At present there is a small set of these Lost Distillery drams available in the USA. This expression is based on the lost distillery, Lossit. Lossit was a successful farm distillery officially founded in 1817 by Malcolm MacNeil. It is believed that they were the largest producer of Whisky on Islay in 1826. Changes in consumer preferences largely due to the emergence of Blended Whisky and other economic factors led to the final closing of Lossit in 1867. If Lossit were alive today making Whisky as represented by The Lost Distillery Co., it would surely be a hit.

How to Enjoy

Sip neat with a small splash of water. I would suggest that you avoid ice.
