Winning bid: £65.00
Lot number: 081-0702

As well as being a notoriously challenging tongue twister for American whisky aficionados, Auchentoshan distillery is noteworthy for being one of the few buildings not damaged during the Clydebank Blitz of 1941. Unfortunately one of it's warehouses wasn't so lucky, and in fact the picturesque pond just outside the distillery is actually a bomb crater.

It remains the only distillery in Scotland doing 100% triple distillation, and one of the very few where all the production is bottled as single malt.

The "Blood Oak" is a travel retail release whose vibrant red colour and gruesome name come courtesy of a partial maturation in red wine casks.

Cask Type: American Bourbon and French Red Wine casks

46% ABV / 70cl

Please note condition of carton
