When we took ownership of GlenAllachie Distillery, our Master Distiller Billy Walker embarked on an in-depth cask evaluation programme across our 50,000 casks on-site.
The results of his expert endeavours can be seen in our multi-award winning core range and in our single cask releases, where Billy has had the opportunity to showcase exceptional casks and highlight our approach to wood management.
We’re delighted to present our fifth batch of UK exclusive single casks, each demonstrating the unique interaction of the wood, spirit, and subsequent flavour extension. The GlenAllachie spirit is perfectly complemented by the full-bodied, fruity nature of vintage Tawny Port. Aging in this single Tawny Port pipe (2006 #868) has enriched the classic GlenAllachie honeyed DNA with layers of vanilla pods, chocolate mousse, blackberry jam and grape skins.
