One of the results of the US-fuelled 1960s whisky boom, GlenAllachie was built in 1967 by Scottish & Newcastle Breweries’ distilling subsidiary, Mackinlay’s. It has only very rarely been seen as a single malt bottling – most notably as part of Chivas Brothers’ Cask Strength series.
In July 2017, it was announced that Chivas Brothers had agreed to sell GlenAllachie to The GlenAllachie Distillers Company, operated by former BenRiach MD Billy Walker, ex-Inver House Distillers MD Graham Stevenson, and Trisha Savage. A capital ‘A’ was added to the distillery name, in keeping with the changes Walker made to BenRiach and GlenDronach under his stewardship.
For The GlenAllachie Virgin Oak Series, we have first matured our whisky in American Oak Ex-Bourbon Barrels. To add a delicate and distinctive twist, the whisky then undergoes additional maturation in specially selected Virgin Oak Casks, giving us the perfect balance of spirit and wood character.
