Glenallachie was founded in 1967 by Mackinlay McPherson & Co., with production starting in February 1968. The distillery was decommissioned in 1987 following a takeover by Invergordon Distillers. Campbell Distillers, now part of Pernod Ricard, bought the distillery in 1989. They increased the number of stills from two to four, and restarted production. Since October 2017, Glenallachie has been part of the GlenAllachie Consortium led by Master Distiller Billy Walker. The first new official bottlings under the ownership of Billy Walker were six single cask whiskies released as part of the distillery’s 50th anniversary celebrations. Glenallachie 27 Years Old 50th Anniversary Bottling 1990 was distilled on 8 May 1990 and matured for 27 years in sherry butt #2515. It was bottled in February 2018 at a cask strength of 44.9%. On the nose, you’ll find aromas of raisins and spices drenched with orange and grapefruit. The palate has a rich sherry and raisin profile, supported by notes of dark chocolate, grapefruit and spices. Only 484 bottles were released.
