Converted into a distillery in 1957, Lochside was previously the site of an 18th-century brewery. The founder was Joseph W Hobbs, a famous figure in the industry who also owned Ben Nevis, Bruichladdich, Glenkinchie, Glenesk, Benromach and Glenury Royal. Read More »
Another 'single blend' from Adelphi, a single cask bottling of Lochside that is made up of both grain and malt whisky from 1965, distilled at the distillery and filled into the cask together. A big hit at The Whisky Show 2012.
An interesting single cask whisky bottled at cask strength in 2011 by The Whisky Exchange. Lochside produced both grain and malt whisky from its opening in 1957 until the early 1970s and this is a 'single blend' using only whisky from the distillery. Unusually, the whisky was blended before ageing, with the mix of grain and malt maturing in the same cask for 46 years. A very rare style from this now closed distillery.
