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 Master Distiller Billy Walker, ex-Inver House Distillers Master Distiller 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.
Created from a combination of Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso sherry puncheons along with a small quantity of Virgin Oak casks and red wine barriques.
Brand Tasting Notes: On the nose, heather honey, butterscotch, and cinnamon, followed by waves of ginger, toasted almonds, and mocha. On the palate, lashings of treacle, dried sultanas, and butterscotch, with cinnamon, peppermint, and honeycomb.
