A deliciously Sherried, and wonderfully well-matured single malt Scotch whisky from the GlenDronach distillery, found a little outside the Speyside region. This 18 year old dram is named after the distiller’s maverick founder, James Allardice. The whisky has been entirely matured in Oloroso sherry casks, and is packed with fruity, nutty flavours.
It was James Allardice who founded the GlenDronach back in 1826, when he headed up a group of local farmers to establish the distillery. This was soon after the Excise Act of 1823, and legal distillation was still finding its feet as a viable business for farmers with excess crop.
Allardice was something of an early whisky marketeer, taking his wares down to Edinburgh to sell to innkeepers and bartenders, and selling GlenDronach in the London market soon after it was first produced.
Unfortunately, his luck ran out in 1837 when a fire ravaged the distillery, with Allardice declaring bankruptcy just 5 years later.
Thankfully, the distillery was rebuilt in the grand and imposing Victorian style, the form it has maintained to the current day. Nevertheless, it is only right that GlenDronach produces a whisky to honour its founder, and this is a dram that certainly fits the bill – high in quality, and loaded with flavour.
