Glenallachie is situated in Banffshire, at the foot of Ben Rinnes, neighboring several other distilleries. Founded in 1967 by Mackinlay McPherson Ltd Glenallachie is one of the youngest distilleries in Scotland. In 1989 Campbell Distillers acquired The GlenAllachie Distillery, starting production run that lasted for nearly 30 years.
In 2017 Billy Walker, Trisha Savage and Graham Stevenson came together to acquire the GlenAllachie facility reincarnating the distillery as The GlenAllachie Distillers Company Limited. The highly anticipated core range of the GlenAllachie distillery from Speyside was finally launched in July 2018.
The water for the distillery comes from the dam heads over 2 miles from the distillery. Henshead and Blackstank flow into Beachshach Burn, which supplies the water directly to the distillery, and sits on the North East of BenRinnes. The distillery was designed to be gravity fed, created with horizontal condensers that maintain a consistent temperature, or increase/decrease to alter the character of the spirit.
Using a vast amount of aged stock that was obtained along with the distillery, dating back as far as the 1970’s GlenAllachie Master Distiller Billy Walker has masterfully created a signature single malt. The most important release in the history of The GlenAllachie Distillers Company; GlenAllachie 12 Year Old, is the heart of their range, a landmark bottling, selected and bottled under the careful eye of Master Distiller Billy Walker. Earning a Gold medal at the 2019 San Francisco World Spirits Competition, this 12 year showcases whisky matured in Pedro Ximénez sherry, oloroso sherry, and virgin oak casks.
