Description

Auchentoshan Distillery traces its origins to at least 1800, although the details are complicated by the unreliability of records from that time.  Situated close to the strategically important Clydeside shipyards, wartime bombing heavily damaged the distillery’s buildings (distilleries look much like industrial facilities from the air) and extensive reconstruction was required after 1945 - it was completely rebuilt in 1969. 

This whisky was initially matured for 8 years in North American bourbon casks followed by 17 years in first fill wine barriques from Bourdeaux. Distilled in 1988 and bottled at 25 years old.

N.B. - Please note the condition of the labels and packaging and also the fill levels of any bottle before bidding.
