Auchroisk particulars:

Pronunciation: awkh.rOYsk or othrUjsk
Location: Mulben, Banffshire, Scotland
Post code: EB55 6XS
Region: Speyside
Since: 1974

Note: According to Malt Madness, there have been no Official Bottlings of Auchroisk during this most recent decade; the output of this distillery is likely being used almost exclusively for Diageo‘s blends, e.g., J & B.

Further note: According to The Whisky Exchange

Auchroisk (pronounced Athrusk) is a relatively modern distillery, having begun production in 1974. Most of the production was destined for the J & B blend, however some malt was bottled as ‘The Singleton’ due to the perceived difficulty with pronouncing the name.
