About GreatDrams Auchroisk
It is incredibly rare to find a bottle of whisky from this fine distillery. They have only had a handful of limited releases over the years. Pronounced ‘arr-thrusk’, the Auchroisk Distillery uses quite fast mashing, fermentation and boiling early in the process. This create a heavy character within their new make spirit which, through maturation will develop into a whisky full of honey and cereal notes. An excellent find by GreatDrams.
Curiously, the first Auchroisk official bottling, in 1986, was the first ‘finished whisky'. They took a 10 Year Old ex-bourbon whisky and placed it into sherry casks for two years. Auchroisk is the most northerly distillery in Speyside and produces around 6 million litres of spirit a year, with virtually all of it going into blended Scotch whiskies the world over.

What you need to know about taxes
All alcoholic products sold by TopWhiskies are sold subject to UK alcohol tax, which is already included in the price.
UK sales are subject to VAT (currently 20%), which is included in the price. Sales outside of the UK are not subject to this tax, and international prices do not include it.
We use a specialist US shipper who sorts out US taxes. These costs are factored into the US shipping charges. So shipping may look pricey, but remember it covers your taxes as well.
For all other territories, including those in Europe, please note: your order could be subject to local sales taxes and duties upon arrival in the destination country. All additional charges are the responsibility of the recipient. As customs policies vary widely from country to country, TopWhiskies has no control over these charges, so you should contact your local customs office for further information. If you refuse to pay any import duties and taxes, this could result in the goods being destroyed by customs or being returned back to us - any refund offered would include a deduction of our costs.
