The Glendronach distillery was founded in 1826 in the eastern barley growing country of Speyside. Its product has for some time been a component of the malty Teachers Blends. At the distillery, where handcrafted methods have remained unchanged since 1826, time has shown that the old ways make the finest malt. The babbling burn, traditional malting floor, great wooden washbacks, coal fired copper stills and stone maturation houses help to create an unmistakable malt whisky. Watched over by raucous rooks who have stood vigil over the making of the Glendronach since distilling began, the whisky lazily ages until perfectly balanced and ready for drinking. It may take a full 15 years to draw out the Glendronach’s very special sherry cask sweetness tinged with oak and peat smoke. But the wait, as you will discover, is worth it.
