Auchroisk is a whisky distillery in Banffshire, Speyside-Scotland that was built in 1972 by Justerini and Brooks and is currently owned by Diageo. Auchroisk, meaning ‘Ford of the Red Stream’ in Gaelic lies near the River Spey where a burn flowing from Dorie’s Well provides plentiful spring water for distilling.
The distillery originally provided whisky for the J&B blend kicking off production in 1974 but unlike many of the other distilleries built at the time, Auchroisk produced a single malt from early on, with their first being bottled in 1978. An enormous distillery with substantial storage facilities (enough to hold 265,000 casks), Auchroisk is large enough to hold storage for other distilleries as well. Today, the distillery is still been used as a hub for vatting Auchroisk with the highland whiskies used in J&B before being shipped off for marrying and bottling.
