Under the law of Hong Kong, intoxicating liquor must not be sold or supplied to a minor in the course of business.
A blended malt from the Lost Distillery Company, created to taste like what the whisky from the long closed Dalaruan distillery might have tasted like - according to their extensive research. Curious stuff, this.
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.
