Retired master-distiller Mike Booth, creator of this whiskey had ancestors who established their first distillery on a plot of land called Lot 40, hence its name as a nod to his distant past.
A distinctive rich nose of rye bread, caramel, wood and molasses with tones of butterscotch and citrus plus a little clove.

Distilled from a mash of rye malt and rye.
