GlenAllachie 25 ans Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Scotland :: UK
100% Scottish owned and managed, a truly independent scotch whisky company.
In this era of mergers and consolidations GlenAllachie 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 GlenAllachie 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.
25 years old
Built in 1967 as a small compact distillery, GlenAllachie was the fourth distillery designed by William Delme-Evans. The complete whisky making process was gravity fed and combined with unusual horizontal condensers it was a triumph of engineering and design.
Fast forward 50 years and they’re reaping the benefit with the GlenAllachie 25 year old. A combination of Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso casks specially selected by the Master Distiller Billy Walker and bottled at a slightly higher ABV of 48%.
