Glendronach 12 Years Old 70cl 43°
This superb Single Malt is aged entirely in sherry casks: a clever combination between Sherry Oloroso for dried fruits and spices and Pedro Ximénez for grapes and sweet wines.
Thanks to this process, this Highland Scottish whisky is a quality product signed by Billy Walker, one of the most emblematic Scotch whisky players for more than 40 years, which returns to the tradition of this Highland Grand Cru.
Non chill-filtered and with its natural colour, this whisky is bottled at 43%.
Glendronach means "valley of mulberries" in Gaelic. Located near the town of Huntly east of Speyside in Scotland. This distillery implements traditional methods of production (malting including drying partly with peat fire, as well as the heating of stills). This largely explains the powerful character and strong personality of his Single Malt.
Always very rich, Glendronach whisky is fully revealed in Sherry cask versions. It shows a perfect balance between the notes of Sherry, malted barley and fruits (red fruits).
Glendronach in East Speyside stands apart from other distilleries in the area. Its blackened stone buildings, pagodas and blood-red shutters immediately attract attention. The small stream that runs through the inner courtyard of the distillery reinforces its artisanal and traditional character.
Destroyed by a fire in 1837, it was rebuilt in 1852 and bought in 1920 by Charles Grant, son of the founder of Glenfiddich. Sold in 1960 to William Teacher & Son, it doubled its production capacity in 1966, the number of stills from two to four.
Until it was dormant in 1996, Glendronach was still malting some of its barley. Once again operational since May 14, 2002, its stills are still heated with coal.
Currently, Brown Forman (Jack Daniels) is the owner of the distillery.
