The Lost Distillery Co. Jericho
70cl / 43% abv
Part of The Lost Distillery Co.'s Classic Selection, the Jericho distillery was established in 1822 by William Smith in Aberdeenshire. An early adopter of sherry cask maturation, Jericho was advertised as a drink for the discerning gentleman before it was renamed Benachie after the nearby mountain. Its isolated location finally led to the distillery's closure in 1913.
