Under the law of Hong Kong, intoxicating liquor must not be sold or supplied to a minor in the course of business.
The is the Stratheden expression from The Lost Distillery Company's Archivist's Selection, a blended malt (made with some longer-aged whiskies than their Classic Selection). The company research many aspects of closed distilleries (like Stratheden) and try to create a representation of what their whisky could taste like. We think that's awesome. Almost a bit 'Jurassic Park' like, except without all the rampaging dinosaurs or Jeff Goldblum.
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.
