The Lost Distillery Company – Auchnagie Classic Selection

The Lost Distillery Company – Auchnagie Classic Selection – blended malt – 43% 

In the last century, almost one hundred of Scotland’s malt whisky distilleries have been closed or destroyed. This accounts for nearly half of all distilleries that have ever existed in Scotland. Global economic downturn, over-production, world wars and prohibition have all contributed to the loss of so many distilleries.
As a result of all of these factors, many unique and venerable brands have been lost to the world.

Until Now

The Lost Distillery Company is an independent Scotch Whisky company.  Our mission is to create present day expressions of legendary whiskies that belonged to the craft of whisky distilling almost a century ago.

 

Auchnagie Distillery – 1812-1911

Auchnagie Distillery existed for almost 100 years, starting work as a remote farmhouse distillery and ending its days as, arguably, the jewel in the crown of a global whisky empire. It had at least seven different owners and was silent for large parts of its life. This was not unusual for small-scale 19th century distilleries, as their precarious existence was often at the mercy of lack of water, lack of money, changes to duty laws and local demand for the product.

Auchnagie Distillery (or Tullymet as it was later known) was located near the hamlet of Tulliemet, approximately 6 miles South East of Pitlochry in Perthshire. The land in this area is rural, a mixture of pasture and rolling hills, with ample supply of water flowing off of the high ground. Local farms in the area (from the 17th century) were built next to the streams, and many generated power by water wheel. Auchnagie Distillery augmented its water supply by constructing a water pool just above the distillery site – the remains of this can be seen to this day.

Notes de dégustation

Tasting Notes from the bottler :

Floral – honeyed – dried fruits and pepper

The nose is light and fruity and starts off with notes of vanilla, honey, and orange peel. Later on there are lovely ginger and cinnamon flavours, together with some biscuity notes.
The palate is medium-bodied and slightly spicy at the beginning, then becomes astonishingly fruity with oranges, apples and bananas all making an appearance, followed by ginger and lemon flavours.
The finish is of medium length, dry and spicy. Orange peel, ginger, as well as vanilla flavours are back and provide a well balanced ending.
This is a well balanced and delightfully fruity blend, both easy and refreshing to drink. Solid craftsmanship from the Lost Distillery Company! (www.connosr.com)
