Glentauchers
Distillery
Founded in 1898
The Glentauchers Distillery is located at just a few miles from Keith, on the road to Craigellachie, in Speyside.

The distillery was founded by James Buchanan and W.P. Lowrie, blenders in 1898. Buchanan did not know how to distill or blend the Whisky, however by 1908, he became very successful with Buchanan Blends.

In 1910, Distillers Company Limited acquired Buchanan and Dewars. A modernization movement occured in the distillery between 1923 and 1925. Until 1966, the distillery was upgraded regularly, with stills and electricity installments.

In 1989, Allied Domecq bought the distillery, and production has continued under the name of Pernod Ricard since 2005.

About
Speyside
Glens a plenty, history in abundance - that's Speyside.

The most densely populated Whisky region in the world sits in a fertile valley of rivers and glens. Home to over half of Scotland’s distilleries, Speyside malts from these fifty or so distilleries are hard to summarize, as there's a lot of flavour variety.

One thing we can say is that they're known for being frugal with peat and lavish with nutty fruit flavours. Apple, pear, honey, vanilla and spice all have a part to play in the Speyside Whiskies. Speyside Whisky also knows its way around a Sherry cask.
