Another distillery in the new-school 1960s whisky-boom era, Glenallachie Distillery was built in 1967 with a view to producing spirit for blending.
Traditionally it has always produced a malty spirit, reasonably light in character; however a recent change in ownership has seen changes to production methods, particularly lengthened fermentation, which will see Glenallachie’s profile change in the coming year.
Consequently the latter vintages, which are really quite rare as single malt bottlings, will eventually be no more.
A single cask, cask strength and un-chillfiltered expression from Glenallachie Distillery, matured in a first-fill ex-Sherry Butt.

Speyside single malts are single malt Scotch whiskies, distilled in Strathspey, the area around the River Spey in Moray and Badenoch and Strathspey, in northeastern Scotland. Although generalized, known as a region that produces delicate and fruity whisky, many styles are produced here. Almost half of Scotland's distilleries are situated here, on the banks of the United Kingdom's fastest flowing river.
