White Heather was blended Scotch once produced by Clan Campbell Ltd, the owners of Aberlour Distillery from 1945 until 1974.

The name was acquired by The GlenAllachie Distillers Company in 2017. A resurrection for the White Heather blended Scotch whisky brand Billy Walker has reclaimed the White Heather brand and reimagined it as a prestige blend.

White Heather 21 Year Old is made with whiskies from Speyside, the Highlands and Islay, aged in first-fill American barrels, sherry butts, and second-fill barrels and hogsheads. The blend also enjoyed three years of additional maturation in Pedro Ximénez puncheons, Oloroso puncheons, and Appalachian virgin oak casks. 

With a high malt content of 47%, including aged GlenAllachie and a peated Islay single malt as part of the blend, this small batch release has been carefully crafted by master blender, Billy Walker. With an extraordinary 50-year tenure in scotch whisky under his belt, he expertly sourced the finest whiskies from across Scotland, in pursuit of a superbly harmonious expression which strikes the perfect balance of sweet and gentle peat.

Once skilfully blended, the whisky was filled into specially selected pedro ximénez and oloroso puncheons, along with Appalachian virgin oak casks, and laid down at the GlenAllachie distillery to rest and marry, amplifying the flavour experience.

White Heather 21-year-old offered at 48% abv, without adding colouring or chill-filtering the spirit; ensuring the whisky within the bottle achieves optimum flavour, depth and balance to delight even the toughest of spirit connoisseurs.

Glenallachie distillery was built by Mackinlays in 1967 to meet the demands of its blends following an upturn in sales in the US. Built as a small compact distillery, GlenAllachie was the fourth distillery designed by William Delme-Evans. The complete whisky making process was gravity fed and combined with unusual horizontal condensers it was a triumph of engineering and design. In its short history it has passed through the hands of Invergordon Distillers and Pernod-Ricard. During this period the focus was always on the provision of blends, with over 20 years between the first Mackinlay’s distillery bottlings of its single malt and the next official release from Chivas Brothers in 2005. Now in the hands of Billy Walker, Prior to 2017, when the distillery was acquired by master distiller Billy Walker, GlenAllachie whisky was most commonly found in blends. Glenallachie is finally being pushed as an increasingly popular single malt brand since 2017.
