Bellochantuy's 2006 Award-Winning Whisky Bar of The Year Menu for The Hunting Lodge Hotel
 Bought in 1972 for just £15,000 and converted into a hotel, Putechan Lodge, once an occasionally used 'hunting lodge' belonging to The Duke of Argyll's estates, went through a succession of ownerships and, its name changed to'The Hunting Lodge' by its then proprietor, Stuibhard Kerr-Liddell, was awarded the prestigious 'Whisky Bar of The Year' title in 2006 and the, near 20-page long, list of whiskies should be of interest to anyone curious about Scotland'sliquors in all their varieties - As the consequence of yet another change of ownership in 2007, though many of the whiskies listed here are no longer stocked, The Hunting Lodgecontinues to prove popular with guests.
Campbeltown Malts
If it is possible to categorise Campbeltown whisky nowadays, then it must fall between the Lowlands and theHighlands in dryness, but shows a distinct smoky character with good body and a salty tang. Campbeltownused to have over 30 legal distilleries, but sadly only Springbank and Glen Scotia have remained in production. In 2004 Glengyle distillery was opened by Mitchells and its first bottling is expected in 2014.Springbank -
Established in Campbeltown in 1828 and now run by J & A Mitchell. The family owners of Springbank are direct descendants of the illicit distillers who established the once-numerous Campbeltown distilleries, and thepresent chairman is the great-great-great-grandson of its founder. Springbank’s still house contains three stills which hascreated rumours that it is triple distilled. It is, in fact, distilled two and a half times. The whiskies Hazelburn andLongrow are also produced from the same stills, Hazelburn being traditionally triple distilled. Springbank is one of thefew distilleries where everything from malting through to bottling is still carried out on the premises for all thedistillery’s own production.

Has gone through many changes of ownership since it was founded in 1832. Along withSpringbank, it was the only distillery to re-open in Campbeltown after the recession in the1920's and 1930's. It has two stills of classic swan neck design.

Islay Malts
 
Islay malts are the weightiest, most pungent and most heavily peated and are therefore generally the easiestto identify. These malts take their characteristics both from the peat used to dry the barley and their closenessto the sea. These factors give them what is often described as a seaweedy, medicinal taste and a distinct peatyflavour. Ardbeg -
 The original distillery was run by a notorious band of smugglers, before excisemen overran the place,destroying it. The present distillery was established in 1815 and occupies a romantic site at the water’sedge on the South coast of Islay.
 Very Young, 6 Years -
Bottled at natural strength, non-chill-filtered and drawn entirely from ‘first fill’ casks. The result is a vigorous Ardbeg on its path to full maturity, already packed full of flavours
10 Years -
Full-bodied, earthily, smokily peaty and rich with touches of coffee / chocolate and tarry ropes/creosote. The finish is long and tangy together with dark chocolate and a little seaweed.
1990, 17 Years -
Big-bodied and powerful, good peat and richness – a touch of sweetness. Long, elegant finish, very rich and complex with a touch of spice.
25 Years, Lord of The Isles -
Perfectly reflects Ardbeg’s hall mark aromas; a peaty complexity of woodsmoke, tarry rope and leather; all balanced by a delicate sweetness.
