From its home in the Scottish Highlands, the GlenDronach Distillery has been creating the finest richly sherried single malts for nearly 200 years.
In 1826 the exuberant and extroverted James Allardice founded the distillery and produced his 'Guid GlenDronach' single malt. Down the years, the distillery he created has thrived under the stewardship of far-sighted investors like Walter Scott in 1847 and Captain Charles Grant in 1920. In more recent times, GlenDronach was bought in 1960 by William Teacher & Sons.
But in 2008, nothing less than a complete renaissance began. The BenRiach Distillery Company became GlenDronach's proud new owner.
While time can never stand still, the commitment of the team at GlenDronach will ensure that the distinctive practices that have always defined the distillery will live on - the most influential of these, its return to independent ownership.
“A sleeping giant” is how Billy Walker, Managing Director of BenRiach, describes The GlenDronach Distillery. “Part of its attraction is that it isn’t too large, but its potential is.” The acquisition of GlenDronach by The BenRiach Distillery falls perfectly in line with all that an independently owned distillery can offer. “It will be possible to run long fermentation making for a more interesting distillate, the way it was done in years gone by.” Considering the accolades already received by all three GlenDronach new releases—including the coveted Gold-Best in Class award at the 2009 International Wine and Spirits Competition, it is safe to say that this giant has awoken.
