PRODUCER NOTE

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. Billy Walker has recently enjoyed experimenting with various types of Virgin Oak, regularly monitoring the casks within our on-site warehouses, observing the interaction between the wood and the spirit. This particular Missouri Chinquapin barrel (2008 #6896) has delivered ripe orchard fruits, butterscotch and ginger, alongside citrus and spice.
