AUCHENTOSHAN (1825 - 1941)   (1948 -

Duntocher, Dumbartonshire. Het eigendom van Morrison Bowmore (Distillers) Ltd.
Auchentoshan is gebouwd in 1825 en was een groot gedeelte van de vorige eeuw het eigendom van de familie MacLachan.
Toen Barnard Auchentoshan in 1885 bezocht was C.H. Curtis & Co, uit Greenock eigenaar.
Auchentoshan betekent 'hoek van het veld' en zo is de distilleerderij gelegen, in een vallei tussen de rivier de Clyde en de Kilpatrick Hills, waar ook het proceswater van wordt be-trokken.
Auchentoshan is de enige distilleerderij die gebruikt maakt van het klassieke Lowland proces van driemaal distilleren in zijn originele vorm.
Op het etiket van Auchantoshan staan drie ketels, dat staat voor één wash still, één spirit still en één intermediate still.
De wash, zeg maar bier gaat met 7^ % de wash still in, en komt er met 18^ % uit, daarna gaat de vloeistof naar de intermediate still en bereikt het een alcoholpercentage van 55 %, waarna in de derde ketek 80 % wordt bereikt.
Dan is het produkt heel zuiver en met een tamelijk neutraal karakter. De spirit rijpt op 68,5 % na toevoeging van water. Auchentoshan is geliefd bij blenders. De gerst wordt niet geturfrookt.
Auchentoshan was enige tijd het eigendom van de bierbrouwer Tennents, vervolgens van Bass Charrington, ook bierbrouwers, die Auchentoshan verkocht aan Eadie Cairns, een pubeigenaar te Glasgow en John Eadie, lid van een familie met brouwerij belangen.
Auchentoshan werd op 13 Maart 1940 getroffen door een bombardement van de Luftwaffe, waarbij 53 vaten gelagerde whisky verloren gingen.
In 1984 werd Auchentoshan overgenomen door Stanley P. Morrison, toen al de eigenaar van Bowmore, gekocht in 1963 en Glen Garioch, gekocht in 1970.
In 1989 was er een management buy-out, waarbij Suntory 35 % van het aandelenkapitaal in handen kreeg, waarna in 1994 Suntory in 1994 de resterende aandelen overnam.
Het water komt uit bronnen in de Kilpatrick Hills.
De mash tun heeft een inhoud van 7 ton. Er staan zes washbacks met een inhoud van 38000 liter elk, vier zijn er gemaakt van Canadees Larikshout, twee van roestvrij staal.
In het ketelhuis staan drie ketels: één wash still van 17.300 liter, één zogenaamde 'intermediate' still van 8000 liter en een spirit still van 11.500 liter.
De met stoom gestookte ketels kunnen 1,5 miljoen liter spirit per jaar produceren.

Na de eerste distillatie is het alcoholpercentage 18,5 %, na de distillatie in de 'intermediate' still 54 % en na het verlaten van de spirit still is het alcoholpercentage 81 %, het hoogste percentage in Schotland.
De spirit is daardoor heel zuiver en heel geschikt voor blenders.Vóór het rijpen in zowel refill-, Bourbon- als sherryvaten wordt de spirit verdund tot 68,5 %. De eigen blend van de groep is Rob Roy.

THE COLLECTOR
MARK ‘TOSHAN MAN’ DERMUL, AUCHENTOSHAN
January 2019
Mark ‘Toshan Man’ Dermul collects whisky, particularly Auchentoshan, as much for his own drinking as he does for tasting sessions for others. He explains  his ‘pragmatic’ attitude towards collecting, and how a joke started his vlogging channel.

Chosen dram: Dermul has amassed a ‘comprehensive’ collection of Auchentoshan whiskies
Mark Dermul inhabits two spheres of classical geekdom: whisky and Star Wars. Although, if you speak to him or watch his ‘Mark’s Whisky Ramblings’ vlogs on YouTube, it’s evident he has sufficient enthusiasm to support both. He is one of those emerging breeds of serious whisky lover who has started to make their passion a profession. He works part-time for ING Bank and the rest of the time as a whisky specialist at the auction site Catawiki. Add into the mix his vlogging, blogging and many tastings, and what emerges is a seriously committed whisky enthusiast.

‘Truth be told, I’m not sure I remember (how I first got into whisky),’ he says. ‘It’s been a while, but I do remember being dragged along to a whisky tasting some 20-odd years ago. Then early this millennium I got that faithful bottle of Auchentoshan 12 for my birthday from my colleagues.’ Dermul is affectionately known as the ‘Toshan Man’, due to his passion for the distillery.

‘The nickname was given to me by Auchentoshan’s former distillery manager, Jeremy Stephens,’ Dermul explains. ‘It stuck. I am inclined to believe mine is the most comprehensive collection of Auchentoshan bottles around – some 350 from the 1960s onward.’

Auchentoshan was the first distillery Dermul visited and his enthusiasm for it has never waned. Although he also ‘collects’ many whiskies for his own drinking, he also includes them in the numerous tastings he organises.

Dermul has over 350 bottles of Auchentoshan in his collection

‘I have some 50 open bottles at all times and they are from all distilleries, both Scottish and others. As I often host tastings in my neck of the woods, I have the perfect excuse to try many new releases. And when I come across a true gem, it will get a permanent place in the bar. I also have a very small stash of what one might consider investment whisky. It’s not meant to pay for my pension, but for future interesting releases.’

It’s an inevitable subject that crops up with any collector, that of rising prices: ‘While I do appreciate the fact that the older bottles in my collection increase in value, I only consider this a good thing should I ever run into financial problems. But I actually plan to drink all my bottles.’

Dermul’s attitude to topics like investment illustrates the typical subtlety with which many long-term collectors are coming to view it. A head for pragmatism and a heart for passion – both supporting and intersecting with the other. It’s an aspect that is only heightened by his professional involvement with the secondary market. ‘The problem of fakes in the secondary market exists, to be sure, but it is much less of a problem than most people make it out to be. Having said that, we refuse quite a few bottles for auction on a weekly basis. When we have even the slightest doubt, we prefer to err on the safe side.’

The more casual side of Dermul’s whisky life is his vlogging, which remains very much a hobby and began as a challenge from a friend in Glasgow. ‘It actually started as a joke,’ he explains. ‘A challenge of sorts by a whisky friend in Glasgow. Obviously, I won. The response from the aficionados around the world is very heart-warming and inspires me to keep going. And let’s face it: it’s very good fun.

‘I especially enjoy making these “on location” so to speak. I do try to keep them light-hearted and do not take myself seriously at all. Neither should anyone else.’ There is indeed a homespun, off-the-cuff charm about Dermul’s filmed tasting reports, which lends them an edge of authenticity.

Being so immersed in whisky can make more pointed questions tricky. When asked about some of his preferred go-to drams, Dermul is at pains to narrow the list down from ‘endless’.

He says: ‘Hosting tastings on a very regular basis means my go-to drams change quickly. But there are indeed a few permanent fixtures. You’ll never catch me without an Auchentoshan 18-year-old, Talisker 10-year-old, Johnnie Walker Blue Label or a Caol Ila 25-year-old. Solid, good whisky in my book that never disappoints.’

Dermul encounters similar issues trying to pinpoint his best whisky experience or memory. He lists off experiences as diverse as meeting Rachel Barrie, tasting the Glen Garioch 1971 Samaroli Sherry Wood and restoring an original Star Wars set in Tunisia [pictured above]. In the end he settles on ‘the bonding with likeminded people with the same kind of passion for the golden nectar, some of which have become close friends and thus enrich my life in ways that go way beyond any dram’.

A thread that runs through much of what Dermul talks about, in relation to his collection and his favourite bottles, is a pair of 1957 vintage, official Auchentoshan 50-year-olds. The bottles, which he was only able to acquire at the time by sharing the financial burden with a friend temporarily, clearly form the pride and joy of his collection.

‘I own both releases of the Auchentoshan 50-year-old 1957 (cask 479 and 480), but have only tried a tiny sip of one of them (cask 479) at the distillery once. It was astoundingly good and probably the best Auchentoshan I have ever tried. But I cannot afford to buy another one at today’s prices.’ Despite the obvious pains of not being able to add duplicates of some of his more beloved bottles, Dermul focuses on what he has, rather than what he doesn’t. ‘I am actually quite content with the collection and am happy when I find another Auchentoshan that I do not yet own, but I think we’ll all agree that the 1957 is their ultimate bottle at this point in time, so I’m good.’

True to his word about planning to open and share all his bottles eventually, Dermul adds to his musings on the 1957 Auchentoshan: ‘It will hurt a bit when I open up one of these for my 50th birthday next year.

‘Who knows, I might be able to find another one at auction before then – fingers crossed. But I truly long to try that one again. If anyone reading this is willing and able to share a sample, get in touch.’ It’s a sentiment that speaks to a robust love of whisky, one arguably forged in what is rapidly being recognised as something of a bygone, less complicated age of whisky appreciatio

The wash still operates as per normal, while the spirit coming from the intermediate still is split into two, with only the high-strength ‘heads’ being carried forward for the final distillation. The low-strength ‘tails’ are mixed with the next distillation from the wash still.

The ‘heads’ are then mixed with the ‘feints’ from the previous spirit still distillation and a cut with an average strength of 81% is taken. A short fermentation gives Auchentoshan a cereal note which acts as a grounding flavour during maturation as well as balancing the high-toned citric notes. Its high strength means that it can easily be overpowered by oak. Consequently, the older the expression, the more ‘relaxed’ the wood influence is.

Legal whisky-making started here on the banks of the Clyde in 1817 when the Duntocher distillery was built by John Bulloch. Like many early start-ups it had a chequered early history and Bulloch went bankrupt soon after. It wasn’t to put his family off however. His grandson co-founded one of the 19th century’s most famous blending and broking firms, Bulloch Lade.

It was bought in 1834 by John Hart and Alexander Filshie who changed its name to Auchintoshan [sic]. The Filshie’s sold up in 1875 to a local grain merchant and again like so many stills, ‘Auchie’ spent almost a century being passed from one owner to another. During the Clyde Blitz of 1941 a warehouse was hit, sending a stream of blazing whisky into the river. A bomb crater has been turned into the distillery pond.

It was one of a number of distilleries purchased by brewers in the 1960s – in Auchie’s case Glasgow-based Tennant’s were owners from 1960 to 1969 when they offloaded it to a publican, Eadie Cairns. The upgraded distillery was then sold to Stanley P Morrison in 1984. It is now part of Beam Suntory. A new visitor facility was built in 2004.

Unusually, all of its production is used for single malt.

AUCHENTOSHAN OVERHAULS TRAVEL RETAIL RANGE
October 2019
Auchentoshan has relaunched its range of single malt whiskies in travel retail, with two new expressions and a new design created to ‘resonate with a younger generation of drinker’.

Auchentoshan American Oak
Reflection of home: The new Auchentoshan American Oak depicts a cityscape of Glasgow
The triple-distilled Lowland single malt has discontinued its Auchentoshan Springwood and Heartwood expressions, and replaced them with two new whiskies.

Auchentoshan American Oak Reserve (£35.40), the ‘next iteration’ of the brand’s American Oak expression, has been matured entirely in first-fill ex-Bourbon casks, and is described as being ‘perfect for mixing up in a cocktail’.

Auchentoshan Dark Oak (£53.40) has been matured in ex-oloroso and PX Sherry casks, as well as ex-Kentucky Bourbon casks.

It is said to have a ‘richer flavour with a stronger Sherry influence’, and ‘ideal’ for an Old Fashioned cocktail.

Both whiskies have been bottled at 40% abv and will be available in one-litre bottles.

Auchentoshan Blood Oak (£75.90), which was launched in 2015 and has been part-matured in ex-red wine casks, will remain as the third and most premium expression in the travel retail range.

With Auchentoshan situated just outside Glasgow, all three travel retail editions have been redesigned with labels that reflect the city’s industrial landscape.

The full series is now available to purchase at 30 airports globally, including at Glasgow, Edinburgh and London Heathrow.

To mark the launch of the new series, Auchentoshan has commissioned a piece of 3D artwork depicting the brand’s Glaswegian roots, as well as famous landmarks around the world, including the Shard, Golden Gate Bridge and Sydney Opera House.

The artwork will be on display at Edinburgh airport until 14 October.

Auchentoshan has launched a new brand identity as part of its new positioning to encourage younger drinkers to “share, mix and enjoy an Auchentoshan whisky together”.

The brand says it is looking to “step away from the traditional stereotypes of single malt” by encouraging the Glasgow-based whisky to be enjoyed in “new places”.

The new look for its range of single malt whiskies will be rolled out globally and seeks to “celebrate city living and the energy, diversity and culture that comes with it.”

“Auchentoshan is a whisky that knows the ins and outs of the city,” said Eileen Livingston, senior director of scotch whisky for Beam Suntory. “It is honest, innovative, disruptive and fun to be around.

Auchentoshan has launched a Sauvignon Blanc expression which is available exclusively on Amazon.

Auchentoshan Sauvignon Blanc will be available from 15 November and is matured in ex-bourbon barrels and finished in Sauvignon Blanc Barrique casks.

It is distilled at 47% abv and the brand says the whisky is ‘best served chilled’.

Eileen Livingston, senior director of scotch whisky for Beam Suntory, said: “Auchentoshan Sauvignon Blanc is a unique innovation that disrupts the category and provides consumers with a drinking experience out of the norm. This enables us to connect with urban millennials who are looking to sample new expressions and shared experiences.”

Ron Welsh, master blender, added: “We set out to create a never-seen-before whisky on the market. Auchentoshan Sauvignon Blanc was crafted to be enjoyed chilled, allowing us to innovate on the key occasions when the product is shared.
