Auchentoshan Whisky

Thanks to Auchentoshan's triple distilled spirit, this lowland whisky is an incredibly light bodied dram, with gentle florals and a slightly grassy tone. Rising through their age statements, tobacco, toasted nuts and a depth of chocolate come past the citrusy and floral notes. Their American Oak and Three Wood editions show off a wonderful variety of fruits and delicate spice in a sweeter style.

Auchentoshan began life as Duntocher distillery, built by John Bulloch on the banks of the Clyde. Unfortunately for John, the business had a very awkward early life and the venture put the family into bankruptcy. With its new owners, Hart and Filshie, the name Auchentoshan was born and the distillery found its footing. When the Filshie's sold the distillery, Auchentoshan changed hands numerous times from 1875 to 1960, but the distillery itself kept on producing throughout.

 

For the last years of its first life, Auchentoshan was owned by Tennant's, the Glasgow brewers before being sold on in 1969 to one Eadie Cairns. He closed and demolished the distillery almost entirely before rebuilding and upgrading the site. It needed this work after surviving multiple ownerships and two world wars, suffering a direct hit to its warehouses during the Second World War. Cairns preserved the distillery pond, which was created in a bomb crater from the Clyde Blitz in 1941. After a few more years, Auchentoshan changed hands, once more, to Stanley Morrison, in 1984, and is now part of the Morrison Bowmore arm of Beam Suntory.

 

Auchentoshan is unique as a Scottish distillery, in that it is the only distillery in Scotland to triple distill all of its whisky. It is also quite unusual to find a distillery, like Auchentoshan, that reserves all of its production for single malt; none is sold for blending purposes.
