Lechside Activity

Latest news

210.000 bottles milestone release

A new release for the 210.000 bottles milestone. We just passed the 210.000 registered bottles, which calls for a new whisky. We selected an M&H pomegranate wine cask, which matured at the dead sea (the lowest point on earth). It is a huge flavor bomb. However, with only 255 bottles available, you should not wait too long.

Whiskybase Gathering bottling

For the Whiskybase Gathering we released a secret Highland malt. Distilled at a distillery located near Brora. Known for a typical waxy profile. A few of these bottles are now available in the Whiskybase Shop. For everyone who missed out on the Gathering, this is your opportunity to get your hands on a festival bottling.
