GlenAllachie are delighted to present their sixth batch of UK exclusive single casks, each demonstrating the unique interaction of the wood, spirit, and subsequent flavour extension.

Bottled at 59.9%, unchilfiltered and natural colour, only 318 bottles are available at specialist retailers throughout the UK.
Bursting with apple peel, cinnamon and heather honey, with rose petals, dark chocolate and Turkish delight.
Waves of butterscotch, honeysuckle and mint, followed by bursts of strawberry, ginger and almonds.
The GlenAllachie Distillery was the fourth distillery designed by William-Delme Evans and built by Mackinlay McPherson (distilling arm of Scottish and Newcastle). It was designed to be almost full gravity fed to run on reduced energy. In February 1968, the distillery began its first production run with the capacity of producing almost three million litres of alcohol. Operations began with two stills and increased to four after just six months.
Mackinlay McPherson became part of Invergordon and the distillery was mothballed in this year. Campbell Distillers (later part of Pernod Ricard) acquired The GlenAllachie Distillery and production recommenced on April 24th – this was the start of 29 years of uniterrupted production. The Distillery was branded as the Home of Clan Campbell Whisky. Appanrelty the inventory of the Distillery listed the ducks in the waters above the dam.
Chivas Brothers launched a Glenallachie single malt whisky as part of the Cask Edition Series. It was a 15 year old whisky from sherry casks distilled in 1989 when the distillery was bought and reopened by Pernod Ricard.
