Glenallachie 12 years old
Glenallachie distillery was built in 1967 beside the Lour burn above Aberlour by Charles Mackinlay & Co to a functional design by the architect William Delmé Evans, and is typical of 1960's single level distillery architecture. The cooling water is drawn from ponds created by a dam in the river fed from a small waterfall, and this provides the distillery's most attractive feature. The warm water from the condensers is piped back to the ponds which gives them a steamy look in winter and is enjoyed by the ducks which are included in the inventory. It is the younger twin of the more famous Aberlour distillery.
Glenallachie Single Highland Malt whisky is available at 12 years old (profiled) from Delhaize Le Lion, part of the Pernod Ricard group. It is also bottled as vintages by Signatory, and is used in 12 years old Clan Campbell, 18 years old Legendary and White Heather blends.
Glenallachie distillery does not have a visitor centre or offer tours.
