Lowland Single Malts are single malt whiskies distilled in the lowlands of Scotland. The region, once having a number of whisky producers, now only has three operating distilleries: Glenkinchie, near Edinburgh; Auchentoshan, near Clydebank; and Bladnoch in Galloway. At least six other lowland single malts are still available, but are no longer distilled, Rosebank, Kinclaith, St. Magdalene, Ladyburn, Inverleven and Littlemill.

Traditionally Lowland Single Malts are triple distilled (though this has not been true of all of them), often giving them a lighter taste.

Lowland Scotch has its moments but lacks the character of the other regions. Of course there is always exceptions.
