We Select the Finest Casks
Fine Scotch Whisky needs to rest in fine oak casks. Springwood matures in casks which once held American bourbon, typically for four years. A good number of these empty casks end up at the Auchentoshan Distillery in Scotland. We use different sizes of bourbon casks – hogshead and barrels – to mature Springwood. These well-chosen casks ensure Springwood develops a nuttiness and vanilla on the tongue and a wonderfully golden colour.
We Always Triple Distil
Taste is everything. That is why we always have, and always will, triple distil our whisky. This collects the highest concentration of new make spirit in Scotland. And it gives Auchentoshan its unmistakably light and fruity flavour. With time, the spirit matures inside fine oak casks, creating deeper colours, fuller flavours and a distinctive smoothness. It is uniquely Auchentoshan.
We are the only distillery in Scotland to triple distil every drop we create, just as we did in the 19th century. It is tradition we’re proud to uphold. We can’t imagine making our single malt scotch whisky any other way.
