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.
