Here’s our recipe for an Auchentoshan Sour, our own take on the old trusted classic. The combination of flavours really brings out the best in our American Oak.

We put a lot of effort into making sure you enjoy a refreshing whisky taste from every bottle of Auchentoshan. Every drop we produce is triple distilled. With American Oak, we achieve a distinctive taste through maturing the Single Malt whisky in premium American bourbon casks.

So, when it comes time to create a cocktail, it all about finding the right ingredients to complement the rich combination of flavours already in our whisky. It’s worth the effort though. A simple cocktail can really bring out the flavours in our Single Malt, as well as making for a refreshingly cool sip on a sunny day.

That’s why we highly recommend that you try this Auchentoshan sour whisky cocktail with friends. In fact, it’s one of our signature serves.

Auchentoshan American Oak Single Malt Scotch Whisky has a finish infused with notes of vanilla and coconut together with layers of zesty citrus fruit. It’s ideal for making a classic sour whisky cocktail with a twist.

Cocktail Ingredients

35ml Auchentoshan American Oak
20ml Simple syrup (to prepare: dissolve one part sugar in one part water over a hob and let chill)
20ml Fresh lemon juice


Add all of the ingredients to a shaker and fill with ice. You can do this in some Tupperware at home if you haven’t got a shaker yet. Just shake and strain into a rocks glass filled with ice, then garnish with your choice of a cherry or a lemon wedge. After that, all that’s left to do is enjoy.
