A line from Dundee to Dumbarton dictates the Northern extent of the Lowland region, which extends south to the Scottish/English border. The region has eight producing single malt distilleries and about the same number of extinct ones. Traditionally, the Lowland dram is a lighter style, focusing on citrus, 'grassy' and clean oaky notes.
Once home to a large number of distilleries in the early period of Scotch whisky, and while its numbers dwindled to just a handful in more recent times, there has been a resurgance of production in the area with newcomers Kingsbarns, Daftmill and Annandale, all of which will release mature whiskies in the coming years.
