Description

When they took ownership of GlenAllachie Distillery, Master Distiller Billy Walker embarked on an in-depth cask evaluation programme across our 50,000 casks on-site.

The results of his expert endeavours can be seen in their multi-award winning core range and in our single cask releases, where Billy has had the opportunity to showcase exceptional casks and highlight our approach to wood management.

We’re excited to present GlenAllachie’s third batch of single casks exclusive to the UK, each skilfully demonstrating the unique interaction of the wood, spirit and subsequent flavour extension. Rioja, the region synonymous with Spain and Wine, produces wines mostly containing the Tempranillo grape aged in cask for many years. These Barrels are sourced from some of the regions top producers and deliver wonderful notes of summer berries combined with a depth of body leading to a long finish (much as you would expect form the wines).
