Established in 1823 on the outskirts of North Glasgow, on the foothills of Kilpatrick, Auchentoshan is one of the last three Lowlands distilleries still operating.


This unpronounceable name with such a typically Scottish consonance means “the field corner” in Gaelic. Auchentoshan is the only Scotch Single Malt being triple-distilled, a custom usually associated with Ireland. This process imparts truly pure aromas to the distillate and creates a refined, elegant Single Malt with distinctive fruity character. As a pioneer on many aspects, Auchentoshan is the only distillery offering a “Three Wood” Single Malt, successively aged in three different types of casks (bourbon, Oloroso sherry and Pedro Ximenez). The new Auchentoshan range includes 12 year-old, 18 year-old and 21 year-old whiskies and two new, extremely rare limited series presented in a decanter and distilled in 1957 and 1965.

Colour: old gold with amber glow.

Nose: round and distinguished, with sherried toffee and hazelnuts. Honeysuckle, Iris and lavender form a floral bouquet, developing onto malting barley and sweet spices (cinnamon and cumin).

Palate: sweet and balanced, the first hit is malted with a flavour of brioche, mid-palate bounces from ripe fruits (pear, apple) to subtle notes of menthol, wax and fresh nuts, with a marked return of heady flowers (violet, lavender) and dark chocolate.

Finish: long and subtle. Moka and cake notes reveals a patissery and flavoursome edge lifted by a hint of salt. Beautiful woody/fruity balance, quite floral.
