Lost Distillery Co reveals Dalaruan Classic

The Lost Distillery Company has extended its range with a new expression from Campbeltown's 'lost' Dalaruan Distillery. 

Dalaruan Distillery, was founded in 1825 in the Campbeltown region. At its height, the region had 34 working distilleries, which has decreased over the last century to just three. The triple-distilled whisky was a component of the Greenlees’ Bros blend, ‘Lorne’. When the industry collapsed, the distillery was sold at auction in 1925.

Dalaruan Classic has an ABV of 45% and will initially be launched in the UK, the Netherlands, Hungary and France with plans to launch into 15 markets across the world in the next year. The whisky is available at selected retailers including The Whisky Shop, as well as on TLDC’s online shop in the UK.

Scott Watson, co-founder of The Lost Distillery Company says: “Once a well-known Campbeltown malt, Dalaruan has been lost for nearly 100 years.

“We have conducted an in-depth research project to establish how this this long lost whisky might have tasted all those year ago then pay homage to its heritage by creating a modern expression. We are thrilled to be able to toast Dalaruan’s rich history in the Scotch whisky industry and hope everyone has the opportunity to taste this piece of treasured history today.”
