The Distillery

The distillery has probably been founded round 1825 by Irish refugees trying to escape to the famine in their county. May be this could explain the manufacturing process based on triple distillation, like in Ireland.
First alteration works took place in 1875.
The Auchentoshan distillery is situated near Glasgow, near the Kilpatrick mount. The distillery was partially destroyed in march 1940 during a german air raid. The reason of this bombing was that the war ships were built in the near Glasgow area. After this bombing, the burning whisky poured out in the river Clyde.
The distillery was not rebuild until 1948.
In 1969, Auchenstoshan was bought by the Cairn Company, who modernised the distillery.
Extended in 1974, Auchentoshan became property of the Morrison Bowmore group in 1984. Morrison is a part of the japanese concern Suntory.
Auchentoshan is one of the last active distilleries in the Lowlands. A great part of its production is dedicated to blenders. The malt is also used in the Rob Roy blend, marketed by the company itself.
