Distillery on farm where Robert Burns lived to bottle whisky later this year
A £6 million distillery on the farm where Robert Burns lived and worked is expected to start bottling its first whisky later this year. Planning started on Lochlea Distillery in 2014, but liquid production did not begin until August 2018, with the first casks filled and laid down in an on-site warehouse. The site remains a working farm where the barley is grown nearly 250 years after Scotland’s national poet was tending the same land. Burns was 18 when he moved to Lochlea Farm in 1777, and worked there until 1784.
