Glenallachie Single Malt Whiskey
Glenallachie is a Speyside distillery sitting on the eastern edge of Ben Rinnes mountain where it is rather exposed to the elements and is often to be see sitting within the snowline. A modern building and its architect William Delmé-Evans created a distillery which is rather pleasing on the eye. Glenallachie was commissioned in 1967 with two stills which increased to four in 1989 in order to meet blenders ever increasing demand for Glenallachie malt whiskey. Whilst official releases are few independent releases are more numerous with those from Signatory Vintage and Cadenheads proving popular.
