Description

Auchroisk roughly translates from Gaelic as "shallow ford across the red river". This refers to the proximity of the distillery to the Mulben Burn, although it is the quality of water drawn from Dorie’s Well that is said to have decided the location of Auchroisk prior to construction in 1972.

There is a sweet fruitiness to the nose, with notes of red apple skin and custard cut by hints of paprika. The palate is thick and generous, with spice returning to add an enlivening and unusual kick to the fruit and rosewater elements. It’s lingering and complex to the last.

About this SPIRIT

Auchroisk Distillery, Speyside

Auchroisk Distillery, Speyside

The original single malt produced by distillery Auchroisk was called The Singleton, with the first bottling dating from 1986.

The distillery was build in 1973 to satisfy demand of the blended whisky industry, which at the time was growing at a fast pace. The stills produced their first alcohol in 1974.

The distillery has been awarded several architecture prizes and its whisky has also won several distinctions. Only 10% of the production is sold as single malt, the remaining being used in blends, specially in the well-known J&B. In 2001 the name Singleton was abandoned and Auchroisk 10 Year Old Flora & Fauna was launched.

Speyside Whisky

Speyside Whisky

To some Speyside represents the jewel in whisky’s crown. Speyside is the home of legal whisky production and it’s best known examples. Around the world Glenlivet, Macallan, Glenfiddich, Glenrothes and Glenfarclas typify all that whisky, at it’s best has to offer. At it’s heart running from the Monadhliath mountains north to the sea, is the River Spey. It is the fastest flowing river in Britain, and also well known for its salmon fishing.

Speyside is the principal whisky-producing region: Speyside has within it some forty-six operating distilleries - over half the total number in the entire Scotland.

Speysides are essentially sweet whiskies. They have little peaty character They are typically highly perfumed, feminine and elegant.

The classical nature of Speyside’s malts means that a number of the finest malts are used almost exclusively for blending. It is the top Speysider’s that give good blends their ‘Top Dressing’. 

Malts such as Mortlach, Glen Elgin, Strathmill and Benrinnes are rarely found as distillery bottlings, however when individual casks are tracked down by independent bottlers such as our Own Selection Single Malt Whiskies the resultant whisky can be quite wonderful.
