All about making whisky
Auchroisk distillery, (pron. Othrusk), started producing in 1974. A major contributor to some famous blends, it is seldom seen as an independently bottled whisky. The awkward name derives from the gaelic meaning “shallow ford across the red stream” which relates to the nearby Mulben burn. This single cask Auchroisk 1990, selected by Berry Bros. & Rudd, expression has a classic Speyside style nose with plenty of fresh ripe melon skin, well woven sweet barley and balancing oak. The palate is silky and mouth-watering, driven by pear juice and apple acidity. The finish is long and perilously moreish.
Sourcing actor, importer and exclusive distributor of a portfolio of international brands, La Maison du Whisky is, since 60 years a reference for whisky and spirit lovers. Thanks to our close relationships with producers and independent bottlers, we have access to limited editions and unique products we bring to market exclusively. Curious and creative, we are driven by our passion for products and our desire to constantly bring our clients the latest expressions through our own shops, our website whisky.fr and selected wine retail shops in France.
Auchroisk is among the distilleries built in the 1970s to produce whisky destined for blending by the famous brands. The Auchroisk single malt is still principally used for the J&B blend and only a few official bottlings exist, the first of which was named ‘Singleton’ (not to be confused with Singleton of Dufftown, Glen Ord and Glendullan) because Auchroisk was considered too difficult to pronounce! Independent bottlings generally reveal a silky, sweet character that develops into gorgeous notes of roasted nuts and light smoke.
