You’ll find the Lost Loch Spirits Distillery nestled between forest and farmland on the edge of the Cairngorm National Park. The Distillery was established in 2017 by Peter Dignan and Richard Pierce. From the off-set Peter and Richard wanted to create original spirits that had provenance, character and links to local folklore and historical figures from the local Royal Deeside area. Lost Loch Spirits was the first in Scotland to produce a Scottish Absinth – Murmichan – with the help of Dylan Carey, an American studying at Herriot-Watt University.
Distilled Gins are similar to London Dry Gins, except natural or artificial flavourings can be added after the distillation process. The flavours can vary greatly and some gins can often cross over to other gin styles, for example where sugars have been added to created an Old Tom style gin or maceration with fruit to create a Flavoured Gin. Some Distilled Gins also follow the London Dry style to the letter but go on to include additional botanical/s to their gin post-distillation and therefore can’t be classed as a London Dry Gin. Distilled Gin is sometimes referred to as Contemporary, New American, New Western or International style gin.
Located on Royal Deeside in Aberdeenshire, Lost Loch Spirits Distillery and Spirits School overlooks a vast expanse of green hills, forests, agricultural land and of course the lost loch of Loch Auchlossan. Sitting on what would have once been the Eastern Shore of the loch, the outline of which can bee seen after a heavy downpour, the distillery houses a variety of traditional copper stills and a modern iStill. The local landscape, wild Scottish botanicals and local folklore have influenced the products made by the team at the distillery. A percentage of the power and heat utilised at the distillery comes from renewable sources as the site is fitted with a wind turbine, a solar panel array and a biomass boiler.
