The Lost Distillery Company release a dram good Christmas Pudding malt
Independent Scotch whisky producer, The Lost Distillery Company, has unveiled a limited edition Jericho Christmas Pudding blended malt whisky for the festive season.
The Lost Distillery Company hand-crafts legendary whiskies from long closed distilleries across Scotland with a contemporary twist. The new merry malt is part of the Jericho range, styled on the lost distillery in Nether Jericho, Aberdeenshire which closed in 1913 due to its isolated location.
This seasonal release is a variation of the popular Jericho malt, which is part of the Archivist collection. With hints of orange zest and rich marzipan, spice and dried fruits, the blend encompasses the comforting flavours of the much-loved Christmas pudding in each scrumptious sip.
A full-bodied, richly aromatic spirit, the whisky makes for the perfect dram to warm the soul during the chilly festive season. Beautifully presented in a magical yuletide themed red and silver bottle, the blended malt is the ideal quirky stocking filler or memorable gift for a whisky aficionado.
The Lost Distillery Company’s ever expanding collection, is featured across three ranges of blended malt Scotch whiskies – Classic, Archivist and Vintage. These include modern day interpretations of spirits from lost distilleries such as Auchnagie, Towiemore, Stratheden, Gerston, Lossit and Jericho.
Over 100 Scotch whisky distilleries have permanently closed in the last century. Despite being renowned for their excellent quality malts, the distilleries were largely shut down due to the effects of war and politics. The Lost Distillery Company brings the stories of famed distilleries and their people to life, to offer hand crafted blended malt Scotch whiskies. Steeped in history, these malts are re-imagined expressions of lost whisky legends.
Scott Watson, Co-Founder of Crucial Drinks and The Lost Distillery Company, said: “We’re obsessive about craft and uncompromising when it comes to whisky quality. Each resurrected brand is the subject of an in-depth research project to establish the original character of the long lost distilleries.

Notes to Editors
Aroma: A richly aromatic nose starts with good maturity offering remote hints of natural honey with dried fruits, prunes and raisins, followed by orange zest and suggestions of rich marzipan.
Taste: The palate is full-bodied and satisfyingly oily which provides a rich mouth coating. There are hints of heated rubber and a return of ripened dried berries, prunes and savory depth before lifting into lighted vibrancy with, raspberries and gentle spice. Towards the end, there is a sublimely balanced burst of sweetness and tart notes.
Finish: The finish is long without overpowering the length delicate notes, warming and dry with more sweetness than it’s sibling Jericho Archivist. Spice and dried fruits hold on throughout the finish.
Comment: A big indulgent dram best savored with friends throughout the most special day which won’t be overpowered by rich food and retains a vibrancy and balance rarely experienced.
