At the bold 50% ABV, our artful, distinct and tactile bottles are each filled in minute single cask batches. These rare bottles are highly collectable and delicious.

Please savour this single malt and the moment it brings. As with all good things in life, blink and you’ll miss it.

Which Distillery?

Glenallachie is a multi-award winning Speyside distillery and is renowned for silky smooth, fruity single malts and more latterly, usage of exceptional casks for maturation. This beautiful distillery sits just outside of town of Aberlour nestled among steep sided hills. The water source runs from the nearby Corbett mountain- Ben Rinnes- a hillside desolate (geddit?).

Fermentation and distillation are long and drawn out processes to extract the best of flavour from the barley. Quality over quantity is the Glenallachie way.

Palate

Starting with a huge blow of full-bodied spice and warmth. Rich rich rich sticky toffee caramel slowly meanders through the mouth. The sweetness gives way to citrus peel and a dry Christmas spice lingers long after the richness of dried dates and fruitiness melts.
