Since reviving The GlenAllachie Distillery, Master Distiller Billy Walker has spent endless hours carefully analysing and monitoring the spirit within each and every cask slowly maturing in 16 on-site warehouses. Once he determines that the spirit has met the perfect balance between wood and distillery influence, Billy proudly puts his name to every single bottle of GlenAllachie sold across the globe.
THE GLENALLACHIE 11YO GRATTAMACCO WINE CASK FINISH
To craft The GlenAllachie Wine Series, the spirit was firstly matured in American Oak Ex-Bourbon Barrels. Subsequently, the whisky underwent additional maturation for almost two years in Wine Barriques meticulously sourced by Master Distiller Billy Walker, imparting a distinctive twist onto the GlenAllachie spirit.
This ruby blush malt, brimming with notes of toffee, stone fruits and orange peel, is crafted from wonderful medium toasted Super Tuscan Barriques. These certified Organic Barriques were carefully selected from the Grattamacco winery in the beautiful Bolgheri area of Tuscany in Italy, and then bottled once optimum balance of wood and spirit was achieved.
This expression is bottled unchill-filtered for flavour with no added colouring at 48% ABV.
