A blended malt Scotch whisky from The Lost Distillery Company, made as a representation of what the whisky from the long-closed Gerston distillery could have tasted like. After their extensive research on Gerston's history (the distillery stood from 1796 to 1882 and 1886 to 1914), The Lost Distillery Company created this expression using some rare, exciting whiskies as a way for us to see how their whisky could have been.
The Lost Distillery Company
The Lost Distillery Company doesn’t have warehouses full of old whisky, nor a dimension-spanning porthole to the past, but aspire to create present day expressions of legendary whiskies crafted almost a century ago. They focus on the 10 key components that created the character of the original whisky, helped by an Archiving Team who gather information on how the spirit may have tasted when it was last distilled. These components may be the location, the water, the yeast, what material the mash tun was made from, and the shape and size of the still. Since chill filtration wasn’t a thing a century ago, no whiskies from The Lost Distillery Company are chill filtered.
