The Loch Ewe Distillery is the brainchild of John Clotworthy who, as well as being the proprietor of the Drumchork Hotel in Aultbea, is a Scottish Licensed Trade Association Whisky Ambassador. John's dream has come true - he has transformed a garage behind his hotel into a 'distillery in a cave'.
John has used an ancient method for the design of his still. "We are using an alembic pot still which was used by the ancient Egyptians to produce perfumes and aromas as far back as 200BC. Around 200AD European monks were using this design of still to make pot ales and their fortified wines. That's where the Aqua Vitae, the water of life, comes from."
Drumchork Lodge Hotel at Aultbea is officially the Top Whisky Hotel in the world and has also won Top Whisky Bar in Scotland several times with its 700 single malts on the gantry.
