A relatively young distillery, built in 1974 by Justerini & Brooks, Auchroisk (pronounced oth-rusk) is located deep in the Speyside countryside, midway between Rothes and Keith. The distinctive collection of white washed buildings of Auchroisk has won many architectural awards for its design. Good water is a pre-requisite of distillation and this is found in abundance from nearby Dories Well. The stills at Auchroisk are high-necked, producing a light elegant spirit. This bottling is fresh and fruity with toasted malt and subtle herbal notes. The palate is peppery initially with stewed plums and citrus fruits.
