Auchroisk WhiskyAuchroisk Whisky Distillery commenced production in 1974. Located in Banffshire, the name Auchroisk in Gaelic means "narrow ford across a red stream", referring to the Mulben Burn. It was established after Dorie's Well was found to have water similar in characteristics to the water used by the Glen Spey Distillery. It produced its first single malt in 1978 and is used as a hub for vatting Auchroisk Whisky with the highland whiskies used in J&B Whisky, before being shipped off for marrying and bottling. The distillery produced its first single malt in 1978. The single malt was rebranded as 'The Singleton' in 1986, as the name 'Auchroisk' was perceived as too difficult for consumers outside Scotland. The name changed back to Auchroisk in 2001, when a bottling was released under the name 'Auchroisk 10 Year Old Flora & Fauna' in the Diageo Flora & Fauna range. In 2008 the name was changed again, this time to 'The Singleton of Auchroisk'.
