The Lost Distillery Company – Dalaruan Archivist Selection

The Lost Distillery Company – Dalaruan 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.

Dalaruan Distillery – 1825-1925

Not many Scotch malt whisky distilleries have a founding myth, although many wish they did. The origins of a modern distillery are often born from conversations on a golf course, in hotel bars or through numerous board meetings. Dalaruan  Distillery, once of Broad Street, Campbeltown, is said to have been conceived in bedroom conversation. A travelling cartwright by trade, Charles Colvill was sharing a hotel bed with an excise supervisor on Islay (a common practise in low-cost accommodation to save money for the traveller – and space for the landlord!) when conversation turned to the island’s famous distilleries. Charles spent the whole night gleaning information from his companion about the Islay distilleries and the business of whisky.
Enthralled, he determined on starting a distillery once he returned to his native Campbeltown.
Rushing back from Islay, Charles Colvill would have already been well aware of the potential for distilling malt whisky in Campbeltown. Distilling had long been a staple of rural life in Kintyre, and the area was a hot-bed of illicit distillation during the 18th century. Many of the families involved in illicit distilling were still involved in the legal whisky trade a century later. Distillation was so common in the region that Thomas Pennant bemoaned in 1772 that the inhabitants of Kintyre were ‘mad enough to convert their bread into poison.’
