The Auchroisk distillery is a whisky distillery in Banffshire, Speyside, The distillery building was started in 1972 and production began in 1974.
The spirit produced is light, fresh and citrusy and this is attributed to the water used in production, that is drawn from a local spring called Dorie's Well.
The water rises from the granite bedrock and then passes through sandstone to get to the surface and this give particularly soft water, that is highly sought after by distillers
The distillery is owned by drinks giant Diageo and contributes large amounts of its whisky towards high volume popular blends such as J&B Rare and Johnnie Walker Red Label.
Its first single malt was released as a 12 year old in 1986 under the name of 'The Singleton of Auchroisk', as it was believed that the name of Auchroisk was too difficult for non Scots to understand and recognise.
This name was abandoned in 2001 and recently a 10 years old has appeared as part of Diageo's Flora & Fauna range.
