A revitalized MacNair’s Blended Malt Whisky with a deep and smoky profile and a good attitude.

The GlenAllachie Distillery sits on the Aberlour stream near where it empties into the River Spey. It was built there — less than a mile from the more famous Aberlour Distillery at the base of Ben Rinnes — in 1967 to produce Spirit for Scotch blends. It has been purchased, sold, mothballed, and opened again no fewer than four times since then. But in 2017, Billy Walker, Graham Stevenson, and Trisha Savage merged a few Whiskey brands and this under-utilized distiller gem to form The GlenAllachie Distillers Company Limited — now with a new core range of four Single Malt Whiskies in the Speyside style.

The Macnair’s brand of Whiskies has been around a long time with a cult following. But times have been hard for this small producer located near The GlenAllachie. In 2017 The GlenAllachie Distillers Limited picked up what was left of the the company and have set about lovingly revitalizing the brand and Spirits.

MacNair’s Lum Reek Peated Blended Scotch Whisky is a delightful combination of peated Islay Single Malts aged in ex-Bourbon casks, peated Speyside Single Malts aged in Oloroso Sherry casks, and older GlenAllachie Single Malts aged in virgin oak and Red Wine casks. The set is married at The GlenAllachie and bottled properly at a perfect 46% ABV.

Smartass Corner:
So, what the heck is a "Lum Reek?" The phrase comes from a Celtic blessing for good fortune — "Lang may your lum reek." Which translates as "Long may your chimney be filled with smoke." In other words, may things go well enough to keep the house warm and your food hot.

First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
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 or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
William Delmé-Evans built the distillery. He also built the Isle of Jura, and Tullibardine Distilleries.
