GlenAllachie Tawny Port Hogshead
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. Billy personally sourced this GlenAllachie Tawny Port Hogshead to complement the GlenAllachie spirit.
Aging in this particular Tawny Port hogshead has bestowed a rich, cherry hue to this exceptionally full-bodied spirit, which delivers notes of ripe red berries and rich toffee, alongside sweet spices and hints of ginger.
Bottled at 56.5%, unchilfiltered and natural colour, only 294 bottles are available at specialist retailers throughout the UK.
Deep Cherry Red.
Waves of orchard fruits, honeycomb and strawberry coulis, with almonds, maple syrup, ginger and pineapple.
Layers of dried red berries, cinnamon and heather honey, followed by notes of soft spice, pecans and rose petals.
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. Billy Walker, Trisha Savage and Graham Stevenson cam toegther to acquire the GlenAllachie Distillery and from The GlenAllachie Distillers Complany Limted, bringing them over 100 years of industry knwoledge and expertise.
