The third seasonal edition of the whiskey from the Lochlea distillery, the Fallow, has finally arrived. dedicated to the Scottish autumn.
Lochlea is a Scottish farm outside Kilmarnock, a new Scottish micro distillery opened a few years ago, with a capacity of just 200,000 liters a year.
This Single malt whisky, third official release of the season, has finally been bottled, under the supervision of the former director of the Laphroaig distillery John Campbell, and the result of the alembic distillation of only barley grown directly in the fields of Lochlea Farm.

Lochlea Farm was bought in 2006 by Neil McGeoch and at least initially the idea of distilling single malt was not contemplated, on the farm they only thought of cereals and cattle breeding.
The McGeoch family, in fact, has a long experience in growing barley to supply the whiskey industry.
Over time, however, the idea of opening one's own distillery became stronger and stronger, and this is how the distillation license was requested in 2014, while the distillery was built in 2017.

For the creation of these releases, the distillery uses only barley grown on its land and belonging to a specific season, Fallow refers to autumn, when everything on the farm seems to stop for the winter and the last barley is harvested.
