The GlenAllachie Distillery was one of the few post-war distilleries designed by William Delmé-Evans and focused on using gravity-fed methods to reduce energy requirements. The distillery was built in 1967 and sits on the eastern edge of Ben Rinnes mountain where it is rather exposed to the elements. For most of its life, the GlenAllachie Distillery was a production distillery used to produce large quantities of malt whisky for use in blends like Chivas Regal and Clan Campbell. It wasn’t until the 1990s that the distillery saw its first official bottling under its own label.

Tasting Notes

From the distillery: Bursting with pastel fruits, heather honey and dried red berries, with hints of ginger, caramelised biscuit and soft spice. Layers of orchard fruits, orange zest and honeycomb, followed by notes of plum syrup, figs and glazed berries with a touch of cinnamon, ginger and red berries on the finish.

Method

Aged in ex bourbon barrels and finished in four distinct wine barrels. From France- Medoc and Languedoc red wine barrels and from Italy- red wine barrels from Grattamacco and Recioto della Vapolicella barriques.
