Auchentoshan Whisky Reviews

History:

Auchentoshan was built in 1800.[6] After its foundation, it changed hands multiple times, and was bought by Eadie Cairns in 1969, who rebuilt it completely.[6] Cairns sold Auchentoshan to Morrison Bowmore distillers in 1984.[6] Suntory invested in Morrison Bowmore in 1989. In 1994, they acquired 100% of its holdings. In May 2014,[7] Beam Inc. and Suntory Holdings Limited merged to create Beam Suntory Inc, who are now the owners of Auchentoshan and other Morrison Bowmore holdings.
