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.
We're really excited to see a greater availability from this less well known Speyside distillery.
With Billy Walker (formerly Glendronach and Benriach) recently acquiring the distillery from Chivas Brothers, there has been a flurry of releases including a number of exciting single casks.
This is a single cask release from sherry butt #3754, matured for 15 years in a Madeira barrel.
Distilled in 2005 and bottled in May 2020.
