GlenAllachie 8 Year Old - April 2022 Release
SILVER AWARD WINNER AT THE INTERNATIONAL WINE & SPIRITS COMPETITION (IWSC) 2022
The GlenAllachie core range family grows with the addition of this new GlenAllachie 8 Year Old.
Guided by his half-century of experience, Master Distiller Billy Walker has implemented a philosophy of wood innovation and sourced the world’s finest casks to elevate the spirit to its optimum, delivering a truly exceptional single malt.
Created from a combination of Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso sherry puncheons along with a small quantity of Virgin Oak casks and red wine barriques, the resulting bronze spirit delivers sherry-matured sophistication. Abundant with classic Speyside heather honey and butterscotch notes, balanced perfectly with sweet spices and hints of stem ginger, this creation truly represents the character of GlenAllachie.
Bottled non chill-filtered and natural colour.
Net weight: 1.7kg

Nestled at the foot of Ben Rinnes lies one of the best-kept secrets in Speyside: GlenAllachie Distillery and its Master Distiller, Billy Walker.
Having been crowned winners of the Scottish Distillery of the Year award at the inaugural Scottish Whisky Awards 2019, the small team at GlenAllachie use their drive, passion and desire to create whiskies to be proud of.
