Home to perfect starter whiskies

The Lowland region comprises the southernmost third of Scotland. Lowland whiskies tend to be drier and lighter than most other Scotch whiskies. They are also very light in peat, salt and smoke as compared to whiskies from other regions. Lowland malts are dry, when compared with their Highland counterparts, and, although often quite spirity, are light whiskies with generally fewer individual differences than those of other regions.

Lowland whiskies are thought to be excellent options for "beginners."

Auchentoshan Distillery

History Auchentoshan Distillery was established in the Dumbartonshire estate of Auchentoshan in 1823 AND is one of the few remaining Lowland Malt whisky distilleries in Scotland. Since then it has had six careful owners who have handed down its unique production process. This Lowland Malt Distillery rests at the foot of the Old Kilpatrick Hills, overlooking the famous River Clyde, once renowned as the Scottish gateway to the world.
