In this era of mergers and consolidations Glen Allachie distillery goes against the grain; an independent, Scottish owned and managed whisky company. This unique distillery chose to step away from the corporate treadmill and short-term targets. Instead, at Glen Allachie they focus on the important things; making great whisky and enjoying life.
In October 2017, Billy Walker, Trisha Savage and Graham Stevenson came together to purchase the GlenAllachie Distillery. With over 100 years’ experience between them, many would have expected these three veterans to retire. They’re just getting started…
Before acquiring GlenAllachie, the spirit was predominantly used in blended whiskies. So it’s no surprise that you probably haven’t heard of them.
GlenAllachie derives from the Gaelic, Gleann Aileachaidh meaning ‘Valley of the Rocks’. The geology surrounding the distillery is dominated by Celtic runes and Pictish stones, and is the reason for the craftsmanship behind their unique branding.
