Murmichan from Lost Loch Spirits is the first Scottish absinthe which is produced in a traditional manner using natural botanicals for flavouring and colouring.

A mixture of traditional and Scottish botanicals are used including grande wormwood, roman wormwood, green aniseed, fennel seed, hyssop, star anise, lemon balm, mint leaves, bramble leaves, lemon thyme and heather flower. Royal deeside heather, clover and willow herb honey are distilled to give a unique taste and mouth feel.

The name comes a wicked Scots fairy which seemed like the perfect name for the first Scottish absinthe.

Tasting Notes

On initial nosing there is a waft of aniseed which is followed by sweet notes and mint and honey. To taste, it is mild compared to some absinthes with the honey complementing the wormwoods's dry, crisp flavour. Each sip will reveal something different.

The perfect serve

Similar to many whiskies, it only takes a small amount of water for the flavours to be revealed. Therefore, we recommend serving with a few drops of cold water dripped through sugar.

Meet the maker

Lost Loch Spirits was founded in 2017 by Peter Dignan and Richard Pierce. The distillery is nestled in between forest and farmland on the edge of Cairngorm National Park on what would have been the eastern shore of Loch Ardlossan. Peter and Richard have an ethos to be inventive in their thinking, to look at history for inspiration and to produce a range of award winning spirits that have local provenance. They are proud to be part of a resurgance of craft distilling on Royal Deeside.
