Collection Auchroisk - Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky

The Auchroisk Distillery is a whiskey distillery in Banffshire, Speyside Scotland. It was established after Dorie's Well was discovered and found to contain water similar to that used by Glen Spey Distillery and used by Justerini & Brooks to produce malt whiskey for their blends.

Auchroisk, the distillery's name, means 'shallow ford across the red brook' in Gaelic and refers to the nearby Mulben Burn.

The water from the well was used to make a test batch of whiskey at Glen Spey Distillery and found to be good, and construction of the Auchroisk Distillery on the site of the well began in 1972 to make whiskey for the J&B blend.

The distillery produced its first single malt in 1978. The single malt was renamed "The Singleton" in 1986 as the name "Auchroisk" was felt to be too difficult for consumers outside of Scotland. The name was changed back to Auchroisk in 2001 when a bottling called 'Auchroisk 10 Year Old Flora & Fauna' was released in the Diageo Flora & Fauna range. In 2008 the name was changed again, this time to 'The Singleton of Auchroisk ".
