Description

The Auchroisk distillery in Banffshire, Speyside, produced its first single malt in 1978. «Auchroisk» in Gaelic means «shallow ford over the red stream» and refers to the nearby Mulben Burn. This single malt captivates with aromas of roasted cereals, milky coffee with cinnamon, pine wood, dark forest fruits and baked apple with sultanas. A rich, nutty component resonates in the background. The sweet mocha notes originate from the 13-year maturation in Pedro Ximénez sherry casks. The palate is herbaceous and spicy, with notes of buttery pancake, dried fruit, sweet jam, orange blossom and dark, dense honey. It leaves a lingering, pleasantly sweet mouthfeel. This is an exclusive bottling for Baur au Lac Vins in collaboration with The Whisky Cellar. The whisky was bottled without chill filtration and additional colouring.


Cask is All Important!

Two Scotsmen, Keith Bonnington, founder of The Whisky Cellar and Jimmy Roser, Managing Director of Baur au Lac Vins explore the art of whisky making by talking – and drinking a fine selection of superb Scottish whisky.

Speyside: Das Herz der Whisky-Kultur

Geografisch gesehen ist die Speyside ein kleiner, nordöstlich gelegener Teilbereich der Highlands. Doch das Hügelland zwischen den Städten Inverness und Aberdeen, durch welches das Flüsschen Spy fliesst, das der Region ihren Namen gibt, ist das Herz und der Nabel der schottischen Whisky-Herstellung und Single Malt-Kultur. Nicht weniger als 50 der insgesamt 108 schottischen Destillerien sind hier beheimatet. Die Speyside-Malts bestechen mit ihrer Komplexität und Eleganz.

Scotland – Wild history, warming whisky

Whiskey, bagpipes, kilts – These are the most famous elements of Scottish culture. It has not been conclusively determined who invented whisky. The Scots and Irish both argue that they invented the “water of life.” Food and drink definitely tops the Scottish export categories. Every second, around 40 bottles of whisky are purchased. So it’s hardly surprising that whisky makes up around 80 percent of total food and drink exports.
