Nestled in the valley of Forgue, deep in the East Highland hills, is The GlenDronach, one of the oldest distilleries in Scotland. A veteran of the Scotch whisky world, The GlenDronach is of true Highland style: a heavy and robust spirit, perfect for a long maturation period in sherry casks. At the GlenDronach Distillery, we have carried forth the tradition of our founder James Allardice since 1826, maturing our whisky in the finest Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso sherry casks. In 2008, nothing less than a complete renaissance began. The BenRiach Distillery Company became GlenDronach’s proud new owner. While time can never stand still, the commitment of the team at GlenDronach ensures that the distinctive practices that have always defined the distillery will live on.
The award-winning GlenDronach range marries the best of Highland and Spanish skill and heritage to offer whiskies of elegant, complex character with tremendous depth of taste. The two different styles of sherry casks that are used to craft The GlenDronach are a balanced mix of Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso sherry casks. Renowned as the masters of sherry cask maturation, our Highland whiskies are recognized for their deep colour and rich flavour profiles, which range from sweet fruity flavours, from the Pedro Ximenez casks we select, to the dry and nutty notes, from superb Oloroso casks.
The GlenDronach 21 year-old was named ‘Parliament’ after the colony, or parliament, of rooks that have been nesting in the trees overlooking the GlenDronach Distillery for almost 200 years. Created by combining the finest sherry casks, this sublime sherried single malt is one not to be missed. Natural colour and bottled at 96º proof.
