The distillery: back in Scottish private ownership since 2017
Founded in 1967, The GlenAllachie Distillery has long been foreign owned. In 2017, The GlenAllachie Distillers Company bought the distillery in Speyside – together with the filled casks in the warehouse. Its new owners: longtime Scotch whiskey luminary Billy Walker and his partners Trisha Savage and Graham Stevenson. The new team was introduced to their special features by long-standing employees of the distillery. Below: The distillery has four stills and two separate spirit safes – and can therefore produce two different distillates in parallel, for example smoky and non-smoky New Make.
The GlenAllachie Distillery has so far produced almost exclusively blended whiskeys. Single malt, on the other hand, was extremely rarely available, for example through independent bottlers. This changed in 2017 with the takeover by Billy Walker’s team. Age information for its single malts is important to The GlenAllachie: The core range consists of a 10, 12, 18 and 25 year old whisky. In addition, regular single cask and special bottlings are planned – and from 2018 even a smoky whiskey.

Billy Walker once again had the opportunity to prove his great instinct for casks. The living legend sensitively selected and combined puncheons, barriques and pipes to create a new GlenAllachie whisky cuvée.
Bottled exclusively for Kirsch Import, The GlenAllachie 2012/2023 was first matured in American white oak casks. For added depth and complexity, Billy Walker selected a further three cask types of varying character.
The sweetness of Pedro Ximénez Sherry Puncheons thus marries with the delicate, floral aromas of Moscatel Wine Barriques and the darkly fruity, nutty notes of Ruby Port Pipes. The result: a luscious single malt cuvée with aromas ranging from caramel sauce to plum jam and garden fruit.
