For May's whisky of month selection, We have selected the Lochlea Our Barley as our choice.

A wonderful expression that shows what Lochlea Distillery is all about. Lochlea is a relatively new distillery from the lowlands of Scotland founded in 2018.

The Our Barley is their core whisky expression that shows the world the fundamentals they use in distilling their whiskies.
