The brain child of Scott Watson and Brian Woods, ex employees of Diageo have searched the histories of about 100 distilleries that have been “lost” over the past century. With the help of Scotch whisky expert they have been researching the flavour profiles of those old distilleries. The types of stills, the barley they would have used and various other factors have been determined. Now whiskies have been sourced and the blends re-created. They have obtained the rights to produce whiskies from 20 of the closed distilleries from across Scotland The first whiskies will be released later this year. Initially in the UK then US and parts of Europe. The first whiskies to be released will be Stratheden, Fife and Auchnagie from near the Atholl Estate in Perthshire. To follow will be Benachie, Gerston and Dalaruan.
