The Singleton

Region: Highland
District: Speyside

The Singleton single malt is distilled at Auchroisk Distillery. The malt was given the "Singleton" name because the anticipated difficulty, on the part of the consumer, of pronouncing the name of the distillery. Auchroisk, pronounced "orth-rusk," means "ford across the red stream" in Gaelic. It was opened in 1974 and is located between Aberlour and Keith on Highway A95. The distillery is relatively new, but has amassed numerous awards, both for its produce and its facilities. All the Singleton produce is used exclusively for the single malt consumer and has been available since 1986.
