BACKGROUND TO AUCHROISK
Because Auchroisk is a bit of a tongue twister (it’s pronounced orth-rusk), the whisky was to rebranded ‘The Singleton.’ Which you might have heard of. Let’s be honest, is a lot easier to say. Thankfully you don’t need to pronounce Auchroisk to enjoy it; although we’ve found that it’s a lot easier to say after you’ve had a few glasses. The Auchroisk site is massive and Diageo matures a lot of their whisky here; but we think that it’s important to try the genuine article.

About our Bottles
For us, one of the best aspects of a good single malt whisky is its ability to bring people together. So when we created our bottles we wanted to design something that felt like a decanter - meant to be passed around a group of friends, new and old, as they enjoy sharing a dram together.
Our bottles have a good weight to them, making them feel substantial and giving them the presence a good whisky deserves. We've offset the label, so that the whisky is centre stage; it shows the natural colour of the liquid clearly and proudly.
The label clearly and transparently shows you all the key information, including: the nature of the liquid (for example, single malt scotch) where it was distilled; how old it is; and how strong it is. All our liquids are natural colour and non chill filtered.
Our bottles come in two sizes: 700ml, which is our standard for our main releases; and for some of our expressions, 100ml minis.
