The Glenallachie Distillery is a malt whisky distillery on Speyside at Aberlour founded in 1967, by Mackinlay-Macpherson. Mackinlay’s was sold to Invergordon Distillers in 1985, and Glenallachie was mothballed, then closed. In 1989 it was sold to Campbell Distillers and went back into production. Chivas Brothers became Pernod Ricard’s distilling division in 2001. In July 2017, it was announced that Chivas Brothers had agreed to sell GlenAllachie to The GlenAllachie Distillers Company, operated by former BenRiach MD Billy Walker, ex-Inver House Distillers MD Graham Stevenson and Trisha Savage.
The new owners are in the process of relaunching GlenAllachie as a distillery known for its ‘big’, fruity malt whisky. Six single cask bottlings were released in April 2018, with GlenAllachie’s first core range of single malts set for launch in June 2018.
