Auchentoshan has announced the release of a groundbreaking special edition whisky.

This brand new whisky is matured in ex-bourbon barrels and finished in sauvignon blanc barrique casks, in what is believed to be an industry first.

Auchentoshan Sauvignon Blanc brings together two things that urban consumers love – the smooth triple-distilled taste of Auchentoshan and the unique flavour of sauvignon blanc. The marriage of fresh citrus and apple flavours from sauvignon blanc casks and the award winning Auchentoshan single malt scotch whisky has been crafted to be served chilled and shared with friends. 

Mike MacKenzie, Auchentoshan brand manager at Edrington-Beam Suntory UK, said: 

This is a great piece of innovation for the wider whisky category and we’re confident that new and existing whisky drinkers will be intrigued by the unique cask finish.

The release of Auchentoshan Sauvignon Blanc follows the recent reveal of the brand’s stunning new look packaging which is designed to highlight the brand’s urban city roots.
