Lossit Distillery
1817-1867
Lossit Distillery was situated in the Parish of Killarow & Kilmeny towards the East of Islay near to the small settlement of Ballygrant; the A846 arterial road from Port Askaig to Ardbeg cuts through the village before turning south at Bridgend.
Caol Ila is the closest existing distillery to Lossit, while the industrial might of the nearby Bunnahabhainn was envisaged long after the small stills of Lossit had cooled.
Lossit, missing from the 1821 survey of licensed distilleries, emerged in the 1826 records, post-Excise Act, as the largest producer of whisky on Islay.
For Malcolm McNeill, the transformation from illicit whisky producer to respected distillery owner made little difference to his social standing.
McNeill’s achievements as a distiller stemmed from his successes as a farmer. A successful harvest meant excess barley available for distillation, while the end of the Napoleonic Wars had eased Britain’sgrain crisis, meaning it could be used in products other than food. McNeill managed to maintain the fragrant, characteristically peaty taste of Lossit that so many cherished.
Between 1835 and 1844, 61 distilleries in Scotland closed. Lossit was one of these. Malcolm McNeill, now beyond his middle age, began to settle outstanding debts to the ‘late distillery’ in 1842. His heir and son-in-law Charles McNeill showed more taste for farming than distilling, and the matter appeared to be settled when the resident gauger Alex Mathieson left in 1846. However, in 1849 an advert appeared in newspapers across Scotland, advertising an Islay distillery with a character ‘so long and so favourably established, that it requires no description.’
The next few years saw a period of expansion in both the staff and buildings.
Lossit was not dead, but this was to be the end of its era as a farm distillery. The distillery was purchased by the Stewart brothers, George and John Chiene, young men from Haddington, East Lothian, an agriculturally abundant area with a strong whisky heritage. Aged 24 and 20 respectively in the 1851 census, the Stewarts took on Lossit solely as a distillery and removed the farm element. The census labels George as the distiller and John Chiene as distillery manager; they are accompanied by a skeleton staff of three distillery labourers, all from Glasgow.
When the Stewarts left Islay in 1862, they might have been forgiven for believing they had saved the distillery. Lossit was taken over by Bulloch, Lade & Co, a blending firm founded in Glasgow that also owned Camlachie and was soon to build Benmore in Campbeltown. Rather than as a pure malt, Lossit was used in the Bulloch, Lade & Co blend as the respected Islay punch that can turn a blend from ordinary to outstanding. It is possible that production was intended to restart at Lossit after its purchase, were it not for the emergence of the relatively new Caol Ila onto the market in 1863.
The opportunity to acquire a modern distillery with far superior transport links was arguably too good to miss. Lossit was limited, small and secluded in comparison, the qualities that made it perfect for illegal distilling now a hindrance. For Lossit, its spirit would continue to be used in the BLC blend and to furnish local markets, but any production had ceased by 1867. After Bulloch, Lade & Co relinquished its lease in 1870 and vacated the property, the distillery was gutted and its plant buried in the property’s driveway. There the stills remain in their grave, the brand never to be tasted again.

The Lost Distillery Company ist die Idee von Scott Watson und Brian Woods, wie John Glaser ehemalige Mitarbeiter von Diageo. Sie zeigten sich beeindruckt von der Tatsache, daß in den letzten beiden Jahrhunderten mehr als 100 Scottish distilleries untergegangen waren, teils aus finanziellen Gründen, teils weil sie nicht optimal geführt wurden. Es mögen sie auch die zum Teil die Möglichkeiten, welche diese zum Teil bis heute klangvollen Namen boten beeindruckt haben. Mit der Hilfe des schottischen whisky expert Michael Moss,  Wird bei der Firma nach den Aromenprofilen der vergangenen distilleries geforscht, den Arten von stills und der Gerste die verwendet wurden oder den Destillationstechniken um den deren Produkt wieder auferstehen zu lassen. An sich lobenswert, aber nicht als kommerzielle Idee - niemand weiß, wie diese whiskies geschmeckt haben, daher kann man alles re-kreieren. Wenigstens geben Watson und Woods zu, daß die whiskies keine exacten Re-Creationen sonder eher “modern interpretations” sind und einen “look into the past” darstellen. Um so besser, das erhöht die Spielräume wesentlich.
