Allt A'Bhainne Whisky
Allt-a-Bhainne was founded in 1975 to produce a steady supply of whiskies for the Chivas blends. It’s the first ever distillery designed to be operated by just one person. The unusual name translates from the Gaelic ‘Allt a’bhainne’ to means ‘burn of milk’ and bears reference to the spring waters that run down from Ben Rinnes’ mountain top to provide source water for the distillery.
Like many distilleries purpose-built to provide for the blended Scotch market, Allt-a-Bhainne official bottling were, for many years, unforthcoming, with single malt expressions of from the distillery being solely released via independent bottlers.
