In the west of Scotland, there is a single malt whiskey distillery called Auchentoshan. The name Auchentoshan is derived from the Gaelic word achadh, which means 'corner of the field' in Scottish Gaelic. Due to its closeness to Glasgow and the nickname 'the morning whiskey' given to its sweet and delicate flavor, the distillery is also known as 'Glasgow's Malt Whisky.' In West Dunbartonshire, close to the Erskine Bridge and at the base of the Old Kilpatrick Hills, is Auchentoshan. Together with Bladnoch, Glenkinchie, and most recently, Daftmill Distillery, Annandale Distillery, and Ailsa Bay Distillery, it is one of six malt whiskey distilleries in the Scottish Lowlands. In 1823, the Auchentoshan distillery was constructed. A maize dealer called John Bulloch established the first distillery, which he ran with his son. After they filed for bankruptcy in 1834, a local farmer named Alexander Filshie purchased the distillery. After a poor crop in 1877, the distillery was once more transferred to several owners. The Glasgow distillers John & George MacLachlan bought the distillery in 1877. The distillery's surroundings were devastated during World War II, and a bomb crater that had stood behind it now serves as a pond for cooling water. Eadie Cairns purchased the distillery in 1969 and substantially refurbished it. In 1984, Cairns sold Auchentoshan to Stanley P. Morrison, who would go on to found Morrison Bowmore distillers. In 1989, Suntory made an investment in Morrison Bowmore, and in 1994, they fully bought the company. Beam Inc. and Suntory Properties Limited combined in May 2014 to become Beam Suntory Inc., which is currently the owner of Auchentoshan and other holdings of Morrison Bowmore.
