This week, we take a look at The Lowlands, famous for its light and floral drams.
Whisky production in the Lowlands region dates back as far as 1494 when Friar John Cor was producing whisky at Lindores Abbey for King James IV. However, it has been historically under-represented when it comes to both distilleries and famous single malts, compared with other regions.
The line between Highlands and Lowlands whisky was drawn up in 1784 by the Wash Act, which impacted how each was taxed, leaving Lowland distilleries feeling victimised because they were paying per gallon in the wash as opposed to a tax based on the size of their still, which led to higher duty rates for them.
In terms of whisky production, the Lowlands actually leads the way and is strongly associated with single malts that are light in colour with a signature dry finish.
