Glendronach Single Malt Scotch Whisky

 

STANDING THE TEST OF TIME 

In fact, The GlenDronach Distillery has been creating the finest richly sherried single malts for nearly 200 years. 

 

1826, the exuberant and extroverted James Allardice founded the distillery and produced his ‘Guid GlenDronach’ single malt. However, the distillery has thrived under the stewardship of far-sighted investors. The investors are like Walter Scott in 1847 and Captain Charles Grant in 1920. In more recent times, GlenDronach was bought in 1960 by William Teacher & Sons. Originally, all of the workers at GlenDronach lived on site. To this day many of the old houses still remain. The most famous of them all is Glen House was built in 1771. Apparently she is quite partial to the odd tipple now and then.

 

1968

GlenDronach released as a single malt brand for the first time. Furthermore, the brand’s reputation grew from strength to strength. 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. 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. 

 

GlenDronach, the sleeping giant, has awoken and is once again an independent distillery. 

Independent ownership gives us the freedom to rekindle the reputation of GlenDronach. As the distiller of richly sherried single malt whiskies of inimitable and individual character. It’s a reputation that has travelled worldwide. The team at GlenDronach have set out on a journey to bring GlenDronach back to life. In April 2009, GlenDronach relauched the Core Range. Since then, we have developed our portfolio with some interesting wood finishes, excellent single cask bottlings and fantastic additions to the core range.
