Scottish Distilleries - Auchentoshan

Auchentoshan is one of the few active distilleries in the Lowlands. It is also the only Scottish distillery to still use triple distillation, which was once characteristic of the region. Thanks to this method, the spirit is mild in taste and matures much faster than double-distilled whiskey. Auchentoshan, named after the Gaelic "Achadh an Oisen" meaning "corner of the field", was the first bottled single malt whisky from the Lowlands.

The history of the distillery dates back to the 18th century, when alcohol was probably distilled here by monks from a nearby monastery. However, official sources say that the distillery was founded in 1817. Interestingly, Auchentoshan draws water from Loch Katrine lake, located several dozen kilometers north - that is formally from the Highlands region.

Auchentoshan whisky has the characteristics typical of the Lowlands region, where the climate is much milder, which results in faster maturation of spirit in the casks. Whisky from this distillery is characterized by a mild, light and sweet aroma with fruity, refreshing accents. Thanks to its subtle and delicate flavor, it is perfect for people who are starting their adventure with Scotch whisky, and at the same time highly appreciated by experienced connoisseurs of the "water of life".

It seems that it is also perfect whisky for cigar lovers - The Auchentoshan Three Wood whisky won the award for "The best combination of Scotch whisky and cigar", paired with the Bolivar Inmensas cigar.
