UK: Auchentoshan re-releases 1957 vintage

By | 28 November 2008

Morrison Bowmore is to re-release the 1957 vintage of its Auchentoshan single malt, which will retail at £2,500 (US$3,837) per bottle.

The whisky is bottled at cask strength 46.8%, and will be limited to 171 bottles.

Karen Christie, marketing manager at Auchentoshan, said: "This final release of the 1957 50-year-old, our oldest Auchentoshan, is very exciting. The first cask was incredibly popular and we have been inundated with enquiries about the launch of the second cask."
 
Established in 1823, Auchentoshan - meaning 'corner of a field' in Gaelic - is one of only three remaining working lowland distilleries in Scotland. 

The first release of the Auchentoshan 1957, 50 years old, was launched in November 2007.

Auchentoshan Distillery has been part of the Morrison Bowmore group since 1984.
