The distillery is located north of Port Askaig on the island of Islay, directly on the Sound of Islay. It was built in 1846 and has had a completely new stillhouse since 1974, expanded to six stills. The distillery, from which one has a wonderful view of the island of Jura, is now owned by Diageo. Caol Ila is a good example of a “working horse” that produces mainly for blends, in this case for Johnnie Walker.

For 25 years, the Flickenschild company from Itzehoe has been putting its own whisky bottlings on the market. In addition to cooperations with other independent bottlers and original distillery bottlings, the company also repeatedly fills its own casks in Scotland.
After bottling a total of 14 bottlings in the Scottish Roadsign series in recent years, the new “Slainté” series is now starting with three bottlings. Together with Hamburg artist Mats Matthée, a series was created illustrating various Scottish toasts. The first bottlings include two smoky whiskies from the Caol Ila Distillery on the island of Islay and a Speysider from the Auchroisk Distillery.
Auchroisk 2010 Wine Barrique
Tasting notes: Sweet aromas on the nose, caramel, crème brûlée and sweet cereals with hints of orange peel. Pleasantly creamy and oily on the palate – ripe fruit, malty sweetness, caramelised sugar with a long warming mouthfeel. Quite spicy with the nutty notes typical of Auchroisk.
