The Lowdown

Early summer calls for delicate and subtle flavours. We leave behind the smoky aromas of autumn, and the heavy dried fruit flavours of winter. As they fade away, they make room for the subtler flavours of the grain itself to shine through.

As the days grow longer, join us in celebrating the bright delights of Lowland whiskies. There are currently just three active distilleries in the region – so we’ve included bottles from two of the region’s now extinct distilleries…

  • Auchentoshan 12 year old. Smooth, fresh, and nutty.
  • Glenkinchie 12 year old. Creamy, smooth – and just a hint of smoke.
  • Bladnoch 1993 Connoisseurs Choice. This 16 year old was matured in refill sherry butts.
  • Littlemill 1988. An independent bottling of 25 year old whisky from the now defunct Littlemill distillery, which closed in 1997.
  • Rosebank 1991. Distilled just two years before the distillery closed in 1993, matured in bourbon barrels, and bottled at cask strength 18 years later in 2009.

Join us on Thursday 5th June at 7:30pm (for an 8 o’clock start) in the back room of The Lord Nelson Inn on Trafalgar Street, close to Brighton Station. Tickets will be £20 on the night.
