45% of all the apples grown in the UK are now used here for cider making. A reducing amount of apple juice concentrate from central European countries like Austria, Germany and Italy is required to make up the shortfall and to blend to produce certain styles of cider.

Within half an hour of both Glasgow City Centre and Loch Lomond, Auchentoshan is a popular spot to visit. Overlooking the River Clyde, Auchentoshan – meaning corner of the field – was set up in 1823 and is know for the delicacy and lightness of its malt. One secret to this elegance? Triple rather than double distillation.
A range of tours cater for both the newcomer and the connoisseur, and for the dedicated, there's a chance to fill your own bottle of Auchentoshan straight from the cask.
