Lochlea Distillery is an independent single malt distillery located on Lochlea Farm in the heart of Ayrshire. Under the direction of renowned ex-Laphroaig distillery manager John Campbell, the family-run farm grows and harvests its own barley, ensuring full traceability from field to bottle – the only production step not currently carried out on the farm is malting, although this is likely to be done on site in the near future.

Historically, Lochlea is the only distillery on whose farm Robert Burns actually lived and worked from 1777 to 1784.
