Established in 1823, Auchentoshan (pronounced Ock-un-tosh-un) Distillery is situated between Glasgow and Loch Lomond.
This lowlands malt distillery overlooks the famous River Clyde, once renowned as the Scottish gateway to the world.
Triple distilled for a smooth taste, Auchentoshan produces a delicate, smooth and light single malt whisky.
What is triple distillation, and what does it mean to be the only distillery in Scotland that insists on it for every drop?
The short version
The shorter version
The subtle aroma and flavour of its spirit is achieved by the unique triple distillation process, whereby the spirit is not distilled twice, as elsewhere in Scotland, but instead, distilled three times producing even greater refinement to its character.
American Oak is triple distilled and matured solely in American bourbon casks resulting in a Lowland Single Malt Scotch Whisky with the sweet aromas of vanilla and coconut - along with the signature smooth, delicate Auchentoshan taste.
David talks through the unique Auchentoshan Three Wood, and makes up a Kilted Cockerel (created by the Fat Radish Restaurant, NYC). Auchentoshan Three Wood has been matured in three different cask types. Moving from American Bourbon to Spanish Oloroso Sherry - and finally Pedro Ximenez Sherry casks. Three Wood is a rich, complex whisky with incredible toffee and sherry oak flavours.
For years, evangelists asked us to create a non chill-filtered, cask strength edition of our acclaimed Auchentoshan Classic.
Auchentoshan Valinch was born. The Valinch being the name of the pipette used to draw whisky straight from the cask. An appropriate name for a whisky with all the depth of taste, flavour and texture associated with sampling whisky at source. An unadulterated small batch release.
David Clelland talks through our Auchentoshan 12 Years Old Single Malt Whisky and creates a surprisingly dark, rich cocktail; A Figure of Speech. Triple distilled then matured for over twelve years. Our Lowland Single Malt Whisky has the tempting aroma of toasted almonds, caramelised toffee and the signature smooth, delicate, Auchentoshan taste.
Triple distilled and matured in American bourbon oak for over eighteen years. The result: a refreshing Lowland single malt whisky with the added infusion of ripe citrus and green tea, the warmth of toasted almonds and the signature smooth, delicate, Auchentoshan taste.
David Clelland talks through our Auchentoshan 21 Years Old. Triple distilled and aged perfectly for over twenty one years in American bourbon and Spanish sherry casks. This creates a refined Lowland Single Malt Whisky, ripe with gooseberries, sweet creamy vanilla, a hint of oak, warm honey, and the signature smooth, delicate, Auchentoshan taste.
