Under the law of Hong Kong, intoxicating liquor must not be sold or supplied to a minor in the course of business.
From The Lost Distillery Company's Classic Selection comes a blended malt Scotch whisky based around what the whisky from the long-closed Stratheden distillery might have tasted like. The team behind The Lost Distillery Company research these closed distilleries and using various methods try to make an educated guess at how their whisky could have tasted. Though parts of the distillery remain standing, they stopped producing whisky all the way back in 1926!
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.
