On the second anniversary of its purchase by Billy Walker, The GlenAllachie releases details of Batch 3 in their Cask Strength series as well as 5 UK exclusive single casks.
Batch 3 of the Cask Strength series is a 10 year old single malt specially selected by master distillery Billy Walker, who took over the distillery with Trisha Savage and Graham Stevenson on 3rd October 2017. Bottled un-chill filtered at 58.2%, it was matured in first and second fill Bourbon, PX puncheon, Oloroso hogshead and virgin oak casks.
3,500 cases are available worldwide at a recommended retail price of £58.99.
The batch of single casks meanwhile have also been handpicked by Walker out of the 50,000 casks currently maturing at the distillery.
Available exclusively in the UK, the batch comprises a 10 year old Marsala hogshead at £85, a 12 year old Madeira hogshead at £95, a 13 year old PX hogshead at £100, a 15 year old Oloroso puncheon for £110 and an 18 year old PX hogshead at £135.
Walker said: “It’s an incredibly exciting time for The GlenAllachie. A lot has happened and changed since we took over exactly two years ago – from opening our new visitor centre to winning the Scottish Whisky Distillery Of The Year award last month.
“One thing that hasn’t changed however is our dedication to selecting the finest casks from the stocks we’re fortunate to have in our warehouses and using our passion for wood management to bring whisky fans truly exceptional releases.
“Batch 3 of our Cask Strength series, and the new collection of five single casks, are wonderful examples of the exceptional whisky that can be found among our 50,000 casks.”
