About This Lochlea whisky
Lochlea ‘Harvest Edition’ (First Crop) is Lochlea Distillery's second seasonal limited edition. It follows the popular Lochlea ‘Sowing Edition’ (First Crop) which launched in March 2022.
Lochlea ‘Harvest Edition’ (First Crop) is inspired by the busy harvest season on Lochlea Farm. This is a key time at the farm, when the barley is ready to be harvested and used for next year’s whisky. The bottle’s ashy coral red label and carton were chosen to reflect the summer sunsets and Ayrshire soil. The soil changes to a deep red hue once the barley has been harvested.
John Campbell, Lochlea Master Blender, said: "Harvest Edition is a combination of three cask styles. The main point of emphasis is to introduce Port cask flavours into Lochlea single malt. Port casks will help to elevate summer fruits and creaminess to the Lochlea signature flavour profile.”

What you need to know about taxes
All alcoholic products sold by TopWhiskies are sold subject to UK alcohol tax, which is already included in the price.
UK sales are subject to VAT (currently 20%), which is included in the price. Sales outside of the UK are not subject to this tax, and international prices do not include it.
We use a specialist US shipper who sorts out US taxes. These costs are factored into the US shipping charges. So shipping may look pricey, but remember it covers your taxes as well.
For all other territories, including those in Europe, please note: your order could be subject to local sales taxes and duties upon arrival in the destination country. All additional charges are the responsibility of the recipient. As customs policies vary widely from country to country, TopWhiskies has no control over these charges, so you should contact your local customs office for further information. If you refuse to pay any import duties and taxes, this could result in the goods being destroyed by customs or being returned back to us - any refund offered would include a deduction of our costs.
