Tasting Auchentoshan single malts

This evening, I am posting information on Auchentoshan Distillery in Glasgow, Scotland.

Auchentoshan was first licensed in 1823 but may date back to 1800 and earlier.

Facts and information:

  • Part of Suntory Group of Japan. Sister distilleries are Bowmore (Islay) and Glen Garioch (Highlands).
  • The only Scottish distillery which triple distills.
  • Capacity is 2.0m litres p.a.
  • Most of the spirit is matured in ex-bourbon casks from Kentucky and Tennessee.
  • Key single malts are American Oak and Three Wood.

Auchentoshan has an excellent visitor centre and  guide led tours of the distillery.
