The year is 1826, the Temperance Society had just been formed in Boston, Beethoven’s Quartet No. 13 is premiered in Vienna, the combustable engine is being patented, and deep within the Scottish Highlands, in the land of peat and bagpipes, the GlenDronach distillery is being born. GlenDronach got its start shortly after the Excise Act of 1823, when James Allardice became the second person to apply for a license to distill Whisky in Scotland. Ever since, the iconic Scottish distillery has been under the ownership of several well-known names in Scotch, namely; Walter Scott, Captain Charles Grant, and William Teacher and Sons.

The distillery is located near Forgue, by Huntly, Aberdeenshire, in the Speyside region, and is currently owned by BenRiach. GlenDronach survived many set-backs, including a fire in 1836 that nearly destroyed the entire facility. Their floor malting was also halted in 1996, and the distillery was mothballed. The distillery experienced a near complete overhaul when giant Pernod Ricard acquired them in 2005. They converted the last of the Scottish coal-fired stills to indirect steam-heated coils. GlenDronach was the last of the remaining distilleries using the method at this time.

This extraordinary 12-year-old single malt was re-launched in 2009. The whisky is aged in in ex-sherry casks only (a mixture of different sherry casks). Non-chill filtered, this naturally colored Scotch is aged for a minimum of 12 years, in a combination of the “finest Spanish Spanish Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso sherry casks...bottled at 43%, the GlenDronach 12 year old Original is a sweet, creamy dram” (Glendronach). With warm, rich oak and classic sherried notes, this single malt is a quintessential GlenDronach. The whiskey won gold medals at the 2017 San Francisco World Spirits Competition, and the 2017 World Whiskies Awards.
