OUR PHILOSOPHY

 

The result of seamlessly coordinated collaboration is a range of carefully crafted and cask-perfected Scotch whiskies, each personally approved by Billy. With a quietly confident team of passionate whisky enthusiasts behind The GlenAllachie, you can be sure we have our whisky in good hands.

QUALITY OVER QUANTITY

With the capacity to produce four million litres of alcohol (LOA) per annum, we made the decision to reduce our output to one million LOA in order to place the emphasis solely on spirit quality.

By slowing down production, we now have the luxury of time, allowing for a lengthy fermentation period of 160 hours, around triple the industry average. This move has enabled us to create a more complex, flavourful distillate.

WOOD MANAGEMENT

With a deep appreciation for the flavour contribution superior casks can offer, we believe that allowing the spirit to interact with multiple wood types across its maturation journey is essential.

Every cask silently slumbering in our on-site warehouses is meticulously monitored by Billy Walker and his expert team throughout this process, ensuring the whisky is bottled at its optimum.

CASK INNOVATION

Being independent offers us limitless scope for intricate and creative wood experimentation.

Our hard-earned network of connections with niche producers has opened doors for us to acquire an unrivalled inventory of not only the rarest casks but also those of the highest quality from around the world. No corners can be cut in the pursuit of excellence.

“WE DON'T PURSUE ABSOLUTE CONSISTENCY; WE PURSUE ABSOLUTE PERFECTION. IF IT'S A LITTLE BETTER THAN THE PREVIOUS BATCH, THAT'S WHAT WE'RE AIMING FOR. IF THE COLOUR IS MARGINALLY DIFFERENT, THAT'S BECAUSE IT'S NATURAL."

- BILLY WALKER, MASTER DISTILLER
