    Glenallachie Single Malt Whisky

    Glenallachie distillery is located in Aberlour and was founded in 1967, making it one of the youngest distilleries in Scotland. The distillery sits at the foot of the Ben Rinnes and draws its water source from the springs of the mountains. Despite being located in central Speyside, this distillery holds a very low-profile; it was even closed in 1987, just 20 years after opening, before being sold to the current owners Pernod Ricard in 1989.

    The site has a production capacity of 2.8million litres and has some unique features which may be of interest to distillery fans, but the site is not currently open to the public. In 2009, the distillery installed a ‘membrane bioreactor’ which allows them to release their waste water into the Lour Burn after purifying it by increasing the PH value. This makes the distillery more environmentally friendly than most others.

    Single malts from Glenallachie are very rare, with the distillery being used almost exclusively to produce spirit which goes into popular Chivas Brothers blends such as Clan Campbell, Passport and Chivas Regal. A handful of official single malt bottles from Glenallachie have had limited releases, including 14, 16 and 18 year old cask strength expressions and a 12 year old which was bottled in the 1980s.
