GLENALLACHIE 11 Year Old PORT WOOD FINISH
GLENALLACHIE 11 Year Old PORT WOOD FINISH, consists of signature expressions of our finest single malts. Our Master Distiller, Billy Walker, works with niche producers from around the world and sources small batches of outstanding casks that will complement the GlenAllachie spirit.
This gorgeous ruby red malt has been matured for over nine years in American Oak Barrels. It was then re-racked into Ruby Port Wood Pipes. The secondary maturation develops the flavour, depth and complexity and adds a vibrant, rich colour. Regular monitoring ensures we achieve the perfect balance between port and malt whilst preserving the whisky characteristics.
One of the trio of expressions in the collection to be finished in different types of cask, the Glenallachie 11 Year Old Moscatel Wood Finish was matured in American white oak barrels before spending the remaining months of its life in casks that previously held moscatel wine.
The Glenallachie Distillery is a malt whisky distillery on Speyside at Aberlour founded in 1967, which sits at the foot of Ben Rinnes. Previously, the distillery mainly produced whisky for blends however has since been relaunched as a distillery known for its fruity, single malt expressions. In July 2017, it was announced that Chivas Brothers agreed to sell GlenAllachie to former BenRiach MD Billy Walker, Trisha Savage and ex-Inver House Distillers MD Graham Stevenson, who came together to form The GlenAllachie Distillers Company. It is now one of Scotland’s few independently owned and managed distilleries.
The GlenAllachie distillery was built in 1967 by Mackinlay McPherson. It was bought and mothballed by Invergordon Distillers in 1985. They sold it to Campbell Distillers in 1989, who restarted the distillery. In 2017, the distillery was sold to Billy Walker, Graham Stevenson and Trisha Savage, who came together as The GlenAllachie Distillers Company Limited, along with two blended Scotch whisky brands – White Heather and MacNair’s.
