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. Oloroso Sherry is made in the Jerez area of Andalusia, Spain and is often dark and nutty with a long finish. The slightly smaller hogshead cask, compared to a butt or puncheon, gives greater wood and spirit interaction, enhancing the intensity of flavours.
