Notes from Glendronach Master Blender.
The distillery in the Forgue valley in Aberdeenshire is named after the source of its water, the Dronac burn. It has a history of enterprising owners from the flamboyant James Allardice who founded the distillery, to the ambitious Walter Scott. Although times have moved on the processes used to create the GlenDronach have remained largely unchanged. The distillery uses the same production process it did in 1826.
Each year a handful of individual casks are selected to be bottled as a limited release after a long maturation process.
