GlenDronach Peated (70cl, 46%)

A rare expression from the Highland’s distillery, for the first time GlenDronach had created a peated single malt paying homage to the distillery’s early days which then peat was used dry their malted barley. 

Using a combination of firstly bourbon, then Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso sherry casks, this non-age statement bottling was released in 2019. This whisky was created using peated malt as an homage to the traditional methods used by James Allardice. The distillery operated its own maltings until its closure in the 1990s, a small proportion of which was peated even then, and can often be detected in its pre-1996 vintages.

Glendronach was built in 1826 by James Allardice, and rebuilt following a fire in 1852 by an individual named Walter Scott (although not the one you might be thinking of). It eventually passed into the hands of perhaps Scotland's greatest distilling dynasty, the Grant's of Glenfiddich. Charles, the youngest son of William Grant procured the then-silent distillery from the government in 1920, and it remained in the family until they sold it to Wm. Teacher 40 years later. The Grant's and Teacher's were early champions of the single malt category, and distillery bottlings of Glendronach were produced for most of the 20th century until it was mothballed by Allied Distillers in 1996. The distillery was revived in 2002, and has since become one of the strongest single malt brands in the world.
