Located on the historic eastern shore of Loch Auchlossan, a 17th century loch that was said to harbour a variety of fish including great pike of unusual size and weight; the Loch was subsequently drained in 1859 for use as agricultural land. You’ll find the Lost Loch Spirits’ Distillery nestled between forest and farmland on the edge of the Cairngorm National Park. The Distillery was established in 2017 by Peter Dignan and Richard Pierce.
From the off-set Peter and Richard wanted to create original spirits that had provenance, character and spirits that have a link to local folklore and historical figures from the local Royal Deeside area.

Located on Royal Deeside in Aberdeenshire, Lost Loch Spirits Distillery overlooks a vast expanse of green hills, forests, agricultural land and of course the lost loch of Loch Auchlossan. Sitting on what would have once been the Eastern Shore of the loch, the outline of which can bee seen after a heavy downpour, the distillery houses a variety of traditional copper stills and a modern iStill. The local landscape, wild Scottish botanicals and local folklore have influenced the products made by the team at the distillery. A percentage of the power and heat utilised at the distillery comes from renewable sources as the site is fitted with a wind turbine, a solar panel array and a biomass boiler.
