Glenallachie distillery was built by Mackinlays in 1967 to meet the demands of its blends following an upturn in sales in the US. In its short history it has passed through the hands of Invergordon Distillers and Pernod-Ricard. During this period the focus was always on the provision of blends, with over 20 years between the first Mackinlay’s distillery bottlings of its single malt and the next official release from Chivas Brothers in 2005. Now in the hands of Billy Walker, Glenallachie is finally being pushed as an increasingly popular single malt brand since 2017.
Released in 2021, this is the sixth batch of the 10 year old cask strength edition. The whisky has seen a complex maturation of ex-Olosoro, PX puncheons, new oak and Rioja red wine barrels.
GlenAllachie Release is limited to one per person/household including previous orders. No exceptions.
