About Auchroisk Distillery

Auchroisk Distillery, located in Banffshire, Speyside, was established after the discovery of Dorie’s Well. 

After a successful test batch at Glen Spey, construction of the Auchroisk distillery began in 1972 at the well’s site, and production started in 1974. The distillery produced its first single malt in 1978, which was rebranded as ‘The Singleton’ in 1986 due to the perceived difficulty of the name ‘Auchroisk’ for non-Scottish consumers. The name reverted to Auchroisk in 2001 with the release of ‘Auchroisk 10 Year Old Flora & Fauna’ in Diageo’s Flora & Fauna range, and was changed again in 2008 to ‘The Singleton of Auchroisk’. 

The distillery serves as a hub for vatting Auchroisk with Highland whiskies for J&B blends before they are shipped for marrying and bottling. The name Auchroisk means “shallow ford across the red stream” in Gaelic, referring to the nearby Mulben Burn.

Auchroisk is a renowned distillery located in Scotland with a rich heritage in producing fine whiskies. The rarity and quality of their products makes them desirable to collectors and enthusiasts, only increasing their value over time.

Whisky typically gains value as it ages and matures in the cask. The longer it remains in the cask, the more it has the potential to develop complexity and depth of flavors. We offer cask purchase programs that allow you to select the type of cask and aging duration, providing you with control over the maturation process.

Buying a cask allows you to own a unique piece of Bladnoch’s Kirkcowan Spirit production and a part of Bladnoch’s history. As the availability of aged and limited-edition whiskies decreases over time, the scarcity of these bottles can drive up their value.

Whisky has experienced growing popularity worldwide, particularly with the rise of collectors and investors seeking alternative assets. If the demand for premium Scotch whisky remains strong or continues to increase, it could positively impact the investment potential of your Kirkcowan Spirit (Bladnoch) cask. Recently we have seen the price of a standard bottle of Bladnoch rise from £40 to £80.
