The Lowlands region is the southernmost part of Scotland. This region is in contact with England. It is a region of rich plains, the cultivation of cereals whose barley is facilitated. This is why the large distilleries that produce the basic alcohols of the current consumption blends are located there. The Lowlands suffered from a certain disaffection and this explains why the number of distillery which was still 12 in the 70's has fallen to 3 still active distilleries (Auchentoshan, Bladnoch, Glenkinchie) and 3 distilleries in sleep (Inverleven, Littlemill, Rosebank). Lowland whiskeys are the result of a distilled alcohol 3 times. Lowland whiskeys are known to be dry, floral and herbaceous. Vegetable notes are present on whiskeys that have been reduced to 40 ° and a little more. However, crude drum versions of Auchentoshan or Glenkinchie also reveal a more complex aromatic palette.

  • Auchentoshan

    Auchentoshan (the corner of the field in Gaelic) is the only Scottish single malt to be distilled three times. The temperature of the heating core kept to make whiskey is higher than other whiskeys in Scotland, it is a direct legacy of its creators, Irish migrants in 1823. This triple distillation gives this particular Lowland a lot of roundness. Auchen toshan's single malt is subtle, sweet, elegant and marked by herbaceous and fruity notes. This is ideally the kind of first whiskey to taste a beginner. The yeast or yeasts used in the wort during the fermentation phase would be at the origin of the fruity and floral character of this single malt. As Auchentoshan does nothing like the others in Ecose, they are also the only ones to offer a single malt aged under 3 different woods (Bourbon, Sherry Oloroso and Sherry Pedro Ximenez). Auchentoshan draws its water from the river Clyde, once considered Scotland's gateway to the world.

  • Glenkinchie

    Glenkinchie is one of the last three Lowlands distilleries, Bladnoch and Auchentoshan are the other two. It was founded in 1820 and is located 20 km southeast of Edinburgh in the valley (Glen in Gaelic) of the Kinchie River whose pure water flows directly from Lammermuir Hills. In the heart of East Lothian's great grain region of Scotland, the distillery is surrounded by barley fields.

    This single malt is part of the Diageo LVMH Classic Malt. It is known for its lightness and sweetness, notes of grass and fruity apples and fresh almonds. This comes from the very large size of its stills among the largest in Scotland. Glenkinchie is part of Blend Johnnie Walker. Scotland is a golfer's paradise, if you make a stop at the famous golf course Muirfield go through Glenkinchie for the 19th hole.
