Auchentoshan Distillery in Scotland (near Glasgow)

Auchentoshan is the distillery closest to Glasgow and can be reached in around 20 minutes from the City Centre. Auchentoshan is the only distillery in Scotland to triple distil every drop. This unique distilling process - whereby the spirit is not distilled twice, as elsewhere in Scotland, but instead, distilled three times - produces a delicate, smooth and light single malt.

Auchentoshan was established in 1823, and is one of only three remaining Lowland distilleries. Its whiskies have been described by one whisky writer, Paul Pacult, as "the quintessential Lowland Single Malt; it doesn?t get better". Michael Jackson, one of the world's foremost authorities on whisky has said of Auchentoshan "This is a classic Lowland distillery, not only in its location, but also in its adherence to triple distillation. Light-bodied whiskies result; light in flavour, too... If you fancy single malts... Auchentoshan offers the perfect answer: subtlety."

Auchentoshan has also won many international awards - including Double Gold and Gold Medals at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition and Gold Medals at the International Wine and Spirit Competition.

The distillery is located immediately before the Erskine Bridge on the A82.
