The Auchroisk Distillery is located between Aberlour and Keith on Highway A95 in Scotland. The name is pronounced “orth-rusk,” which means “ford across the red stream” in Gaelic and refers to the Mulben Burn from which the distillery draws its cooling water. Although Auchroisk is relatively new, built in 1973, it has amassed numerous awards for both its whisky and building architecture. The distillery has eight stainless steel washbacks and eight high necked pot stills which produces a light, elegant spirit. Only 10% of the production is sold as single malt, the remaining being used in blends, specially in the well-known J & B blend.
Auchroisk is owned by Diageo.
