The Auchroisk distillery was built in 1974 by the folks from Justerini & Brooks (who you may know from the tasty J&B Rare) to produce whisky for blending. However, the whisky ended up being pretty gorgeous as a single malt, which is a rather lovely outcome of it all! Notoriously difficult to pronounce, Auchroisk. You’ll want to say it like ‘OH-thrusk’ - go on, say it. Say it. Say. It.
Anyway, yes. Our Auchroisk label features a zombie apocalypse on it. Why? Because we wanted it to. Recognise any disgruntled zombies in the hoard?
Nose: Softly floral with hints of raspberry and icing sugar sweetness
Palate: Lightly sweetened, custard creams, giving way to the tartness of cooking apples with clove spices
Finish: Wood spices with hints of clove
