About Auchroisk Distillery
The formation of the Auchroisk Distillery was due to the discovery of Dorie’s Well. The well water has similar qualities to the water used by Glen Spey, therefore a test batch was produced and approved leading to the building of the Auchroisk Distillery.
The distillery is still active and is now owned by Diageo. The current capacity is 3,100,000 litres and its’ water source is the previously mentioned Dorie’s Well. The name Auchroisk refers to the nearby Mulben Burn in Gaelic, which means shallow ford across the red stream.
Auchroisk produced their first ever single malt in 1978 which was rebranded as ‘The Singleton’ in 1886 to aid pronunciation for people outside of Scotland. However, Auchroisk returned again in 2001.
