Under the law of Hong Kong, intoxicating liquor must not be sold or supplied to a minor in the course of business.
This is the Archivist's Selection Gerston blended malt from The Lost Distillery Company, made following plenty of research to show how Gerston's whisky could have tasted. The distillery was closed long, long ago, and these blenders/historians are offering us an interesting chance to see the style of whisky it might have made.
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.
