The distillery is also known as "Glasgow's Malt Whisky" due to its proximity to Glasgow and "the breakfast whisky" due to its sweet and delicate nature.

Auchentoshan Distillery Reviews
My son treated me to this tour for my 80th birthday. He paid for the higher level tour and boy was it worth it. Can't remember how manywhiskies we sampled but every one was excellent. And the guide..... more »
Pretty good tour, tasting at end was nice and prices there was reasonable. However, the best part was chatting with the front desk staff, some of whom worked in Melbourne and we had stories to share. more »
Went for the tour. Had been to Bowmore before, so I was expecting about the same. Was pleasantly surprised by the wealth of information our tour guide, Stevie, had for us. Great stories and humour with a dram at every stop. Lovely facilities and an attractive little gift shop. Well worth the trip!
Best guided tour of a Scottish distillery I ever saw and experienced since I’ve been in Scotland. Friendly, fair, knowledgeable and most welcoming staff and guide. Heart and soul is poured into this place and it makes it stand out. Really good visuals, tidy and clean and from a marketing perspective, they do it really well! Good quality merchandise and beyond good quality whisky! Get Brian as a tour guide. He is funny, super knowledgeable, alert, cares about what he does and you can hear and see his passion for whisky. Impressive, thank you. Will definitely recommend to all my friends. Quality and attention to detail goes a long way! #distilleddifferent #auchentoshan
