GlenAllachie

GlenAllachie 8 ans Koval Rye Quarter Cask Wood Finish Speyside single malt

Speyside :: Scotland

https://www.theglenallachie.com

Distillery::

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.

ageing::

Matured in American Oak Casks and finished in Koval Rye 1/4 Casks.  The GlenAllachie Wood Finish Series consists of signature expressions of
our finest single malts. Our Master Distiller, Billy Walker, works with niche producers from around the world and sources small batches of outstanding casks that will complement the GlenAllachie spirit.
This golden malt was first matured in the finest American Barrels with an additional maturation period in Organic Rye Quarter Casks from Chicago’s Koval Distillery.
The wood to liquid ratio is greater here, meaning the signature Rye spiciness has a greater impact on the spirit. We closely monitor the process to produce an exciting, sensational result.
