The GlenAllachie Distillery, situated in Aberlour in Speyside, was established in 1967 and designed by William-Delme Evans, with construction carried out by Mackinlay McPherson.
The distillery was meticulously designed to be almost entirely gravity-fed, reducing energy consumption.
After Mackinlay McPherson became part of Invergordon in 1985, the distillery was mothballed until Campbell Distillers acquired it in 1989 and recommenced production in April of that year.
In 2017, The GlenAllachie Distillers Company Limited was formed by Billy Walker, Trisha Savage and Graham Stevenson, who released their first core range of single malt whiskies in July 2018 and launched MacNair’s Lum Reek in November of that year.
The distillery opened its doors to visitors in May 2019 and has won numerous awards, including the Visitor Attraction of the Year for 2022.
The GlenAllachie Distillery continues to innovate, releasing a 15-year-old whisky in April 2022 and a celebratory trilogy of Speyside Single Malts in honour of Billy Walker’s 50-year career.
In January 2023, they introduced The GlenAllachie 2012 Cuvée Wine Cask Finish and in March 2023, they released three new expressions, highlighting their commitment to innovation and excellence in the whisky industry.
The GlenAllachie distillery is known for its impressive collection of casks, with over 50,000 casks spanning across 16 on-site warehouses.
The passionate team at GlenAllachie has complete control of the end-to-end maturation process, allowing them to make decisions for all the right reasons.
They use a variety of casks including ex-bourbon, ex-sherry, and virgin oak to create unique and complex flavours in their single malt whisky.
They also have a range of cask finishes such as Port, Madeira, and Tokaji to add depth and complexity to their whiskies.
Their commitment to quality and attention to detail has earned them numerous awards and accolades, cementing their position as one of Scotland’s top independent distilleries.
Billy Walker, the Master Blender of The GlenAllachie Distillers Company, has transformed the distillery since acquiring it in 2017.
With a 50-year experience in the Scotch Whisky industry, Billy has received numerous awards, including Master Distiller/ Blender of the Year (World Whisky Awards, 2020) and was inducted into Whisky Magazine’s Hall of Fame in 2021.
He played a key part in the resurrection of Deanston and Tobermory Distilleries and acquired BenRiach, GlenDronach and Glenglassaugh Distilleries, leading them to phenomenal success.
Billy’s hands-on approach is reflected throughout all stages of production, with a focus on quality over quantity.
He hand-picks the finest casks to create exceptional quality whiskies to be enjoyed across the globe.
The GlenAllachie Future Edition 4 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky 700ml is a limited release bottling that hints at future endeavours under the ownership of Master Distiller Billy Walker.
Not only is this 4-year-old single malt the first peated release from the distillery, but it is also the first ever distillate produced under Billy Walker’s ownership of The GlenAllachie Distillery.
This expression has enjoyed a lengthy fermentation of 160 hours, resulting in an ester-rich and fruity spirit that was then matured in former Rye and Bourbon barrels, as well as some virgin oak casks.
Made with mainland peat, this amber-hued spirit offers up a distinctively smoky yet sweet flavour profile bursting with sweet cinnamon apples alongside smoldering oak.
Presented at natural cask strength of 60.2%, with no added colour or chill filtration for maximum flavour, this limited release of 10,000 bottles worldwide.
This exceptional malt is a testament to the distillery’s commitment to quality and attention to detail, making it a must-have for any whisky collection.
As the final bottling in The Past, Present and Future Series in celebration of Master Distiller Billy Walker’s half-century long career in the whisky industry, this release offers a glimpse into the future of The GlenAllachie Distillery and is sure to leave a lasting impression.
