This once-rich region (in whisky terms, at least) now sadly only has a small handful remaining.
Traditionally, lowland malts were triple distilled (Auchentoshan still is) which gives them a lighter flavour profile: grass, cinnamon, toffee and honeysuckle.

The Lowlands

Lowland Whisky

The Lowland region os Scotland is the most accessible but this doesn’t mean it holds any less charm than the other Scotch Whisky producing regions.

The area covers the cities of Edinburgh and Glasgow, stretching up from the Borders in the east and across to Dumfries & Galloway to the west.

The area offers miles of rolling countryside, farmland and woodland too. The mild climate (compared to further north!)  and flat land make it ideal for growing barley and the region was once more populated with distilleries, but decline set in due to the popularity of blended whisky. This was in the 18th and 19th centuries.

More recent years have seen the trend reverse however, with Auchentoshan going from strength to strength and Bladnoch’s open/closed situation now remaining on ‘open’, and many new distilleries being planned.

Traditionally, Lowland malts have been triple distilled which lends itself to a lighter style.
