The new GlenAllachie 15 Year Old hich is now being rolled out across UK and international markets, is described by Master Distiller Billy Walker as the perfect representation of the distillery’s DNA.
He believes the 15 year old is an exceptional balance of the distillery’s spirit and the influence of the Sherry casks used during maturation.
Two types of Sherry casks – Pedro Ximenez (PX) and Oloroso puncheons and hogsheads – were chosen to deliver depth and finish to the whisky, and to add notes that enhance the distinctive butterscotch and chocolate flavours of The GlenAllachie spirit.
One of Scotland’s few independently owned and managed distilleries, The GlenAllachie is led by industry veteran, Billy Walker, who boasts an astonishing 50-year tenure in whisky.
Nestled at the foot of Ben Rinnes, the distillery lies at the heart of the Speyside, with a focus upon quality over quantity.
Spanning 16 on-site warehouses holding over 50,000 casks, the Glenallachie team have complete control of the end-to-end maturation process, giving them the freedom to make decisions for all the right reasons.
