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.
