Description

This Stratheden from The Lost Distillery Company is a blend whisky and a replica of the Stratheden single malt that was distilled about 90 years ago. In 2013 The Lost Distillery Company started reproducing whisky's of long lost distilleries and this Stratheden is the second release (Series 2).

This distillery was situated in the centre of the old market town of Auchtermuchty in Fife. The earliest records of legal distillation indicate it was founded in 1829, although there is anecdotal evidence of the prior use of illegal stills in the area.

The distillery was unusual in that it only ever had one owner – three successive generations of the Bonthrone family. TheBonthrone’s hailed from the area and according to whisky writer, Brian Townsend, were a “…true malting, brewing and distilling dynasty.” Ancestors of the family were brewers in nearby Falkland in the 1600’s. They also had local interests in baking and milling.
