GlenAllachie Rye Wood Finish Aged 9 Years 70cl 48% ABV



GlenAllachie Rye Wood Finish Aged 9 Years


GlenAllachie Rye Wood Finish is a gorgeous golden malt that has been bottled at 48% and matured in premium American Oak Wood Barrels before being re-racked into bold and punchy Kentucky Rye Casks. The different toasting and charring levels of these casks combined with the Rye maturation adds a rich and spicy twist to the classic GlenAllachie style. From Batch 2 of the GlenAllachie Wood Finish Range.


At the helm of The GlenAllachie Distillers Company is renowned Master Blender, Billy Walker. Since acquiring the distillery in 2017, Billy has transformed the spirit slumbering in their 16 on-site warehouses into something truly spectacular.


With a half century’s experience under his belt, GlenAllachie’s Master Distiller Billy Walker is an icon in the Scotch Whisky industry. Throughout his famed career, Billy has amassed countless awards including Master Distiller/ Blender of the Year (World Whisky Awards, 2020) and in 2021, was inducted into Whisky Magazine’s prestigious Hall of Fame – a permanent tribute to those who have made a lasting contribution to the industry.


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.


September 2021 – Batch 3 of GlenAllachie’s coveted Wood Finish range was launched, representing Billy Walker’s meticulous approach to wood management and innovation.
