Visit Auchentoshan Distillery
Around 20 miles from your accommodation at Loch Lomond Waterfront, Auchentoshan Distillery is a Scotch whisky distillery to the south east of Loch Lomond, near Glasgow. Pronouced “Och-en-tosh-en”, the Gaelic name means “corner of the field”. This is a great local attraction, offering whisky tours and experiences in Scotland.
Dating from 1823, this lowland distillery produces an unusual triple-distilled single malt whisky with a smooth and delicate flavour. Most whisky in Scotland is distilled twice, but Auchentoshan insist on a third distillation, which helps create its signature taste. The whisky then matures in a sherry, bourbon or wine cask.
Things to do at the distillery
At Auchentoshan Distillery, you can visit the gift shop and enjoy a tour. Where you’ll discover more about the whisky-making process. You can also take part in masterclasses and ‘bottle your own’ experiences.
There are several Auchentoshan tours to choose from. On the Auchentoshan Experience, visitors are taken on a tour of the distillery, followed by a tasting of four different single malt whiskies. While the more extensive Ultimate Experience includes access to hidden parts of the distillery and a sampling straight from the cask! Daily Masterclasses are also on offer, where visitors will learn more about the making of Auchentoshan.
In addition, the distillery has conference space, with a large meeting room available for events and functions. It has its own bar and breakout space.
