Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Region

Highlands


Owner

Diageo


Founded

1845 | James Robertson


Royal Lochnagar is by far Diageo’s smallest distillery with a capacity of only 500,000 LPA. It is the base malt of Johnnie Walker Blue Label. The production process focuses on copper conversation with a slow distillation and worm tubs. The final product is perfectly balanced for sherry cask maturation.
