Back to tradition.

The Glendronach Distillery was founded in 1826 and stands as one of the first licensed distilleries in Scotland. It is located in a secluded spot in Aberdeenshire, dedicated to producing richly Sherried Scotch style with their 4 copper pot stills. In 2002 it was mothballed until 2008 when it was sold to BenRiach. Glendronach is Gaelic for valley of the blackberries.

The Glendronach 18 Year Old Tawny Port Finish undergoes a double maturation process. After an initial (and longer) period of maturation in European oak casks, the 18 Year Old is transferred to a very small batch of Tawyn Port casks, where it spends the remaining few years, maturing and adding flavor nuances that take this Scotch much closer to the traditional flavor of Glendronach, which is what the new owner, The BenRiach Distillery, wants to achieve. And we're all on board. Jump on!

Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
It was believed that the front room is haunted by a Spanish lady, who travelled over to Scotland in a Sherry cask.
All of the workers at GlenDronach lived on site, including the distillery manager, staff, excise man, brewer and all of their families.
