Glenallachie - Glenlivet is gebouwd in 1967 naar een ontwerp van Delmé -Evans, ook de architekt van Tullibardine (1949) en Isle of Jura (1963) in op dracht van Charles Mackinlay & Co.
Deze firma was in 1961 overgenomen door Scottish & Newcastle Breweries en met hun steun werd in 1963 Isle of Jura herbouwd.
In 1985 wordt Charles Mackinlay, inclusief de drie distilleerderijen gekocht door Invergordon Distilelrs Ltd voor £ 17.5.000.000.
Glenallachie werd gesloten in 1985.
Glenallachie kwam in 1989 in het bezit van House of Campbell die er twee ketels bij bouwden.
Glenallachie heeft nu vier ketels en betrekt zijn koel- en proceswater van twee bronnen op de berg Ben Rinnes. De jaar kapaciteit is ongeveer 1,6 miljoen liter spirit per jaar.

The Glenallachie distillery in Speyside has been sold by Chivas Brothers to a consortium headed by former BenRiach MD Billy Walker.

Chivas parent company Pernod Ricard said it had reached an agreement with The Glenallachie Consortium – comprising Billy Walker, ex-Inver House MD Graham Stevenson and Trisha Savage.

The deal includes the Glenallachie distillery, its single malt brand, plus blended Scotch brands MacNair’s and White Heather, as well as stocks ‘to support future development of those brands’.

The consortium said its mission was ‘to be a wholly Scottish-owned, Scottish-based, and truly independent Scotch whisky company, producing excellent whiskies and offering them to the market at premium but affordable prices’.

Walker has been involved in Scotch for more than 40 years, including stints at Ballantine’s, Inver House Distillers and Burn Stewart.

He was instrumental in founding and building The BenRiach Distillery Company, which was sold to American group Brown-Forman for £285m in 2016.

Stevenson has spent almost 30 years working in Scotch, much of that time as MD of Inver House Distillers, owner of single malts including Balblair and Old Pulteney.

Savage, with more than 30 years’ experience in Scotch, has worked closely with Walker throughout her career.

Pernod Ricard said the sale was in line with its strategy ‘to focus on its priority spirits and wine brands and to adjust its industrial footprint to its needs’.

The sale is expected to close before the end of 2017.

Pernod sells the Glenallachie Distillery
13 July, 2017

Pernod Ricard has announced the signing of an agreement with the Glenallachie Consortium, comprising Billy Walker, Graham Stevenson and Trisha Savage, for the sale of the Scottish distillery Glenallachie.

The transaction also includes the Glenallachie single malt brand, MacNair’s and White Heather blended scotch brands, and relevant inventories to support future development of those brands.

Pernod says the disposal is in line with its strategy to focus on its priority spirits and wine brands and to adjust its industrial footprint to its needs.

The closing of the transaction is subject to customary conditions and is expected to take place before the end of 2017.

The Glenallachie Consortium
Billy Walker is a well known character in the scotch whisky industry, having now been involved in the industry for more than 40 years. With a degree in chemistry Walker has been involved in most aspects of the production of scotch whisky, having spent time at Ballantines, Inver House Distillers and Burn Stewart. More recently he was instrumental in establishing and building the BenRiach Distillery Company prior to its sale in 2016.

Graham Stevenson is a chartered accountant who has spent almost 30 years in the scotch whisky industry. He initially joined the North British Distillery Company in Edinburgh before moving to Inver House Distillers in 1994. He has remained there for the past 23 years, most of that time as managing director.

Trisha Savage has over 30 years’ experience in scotch. Starting at Burn Stewart she has worked with Billy throughout her career and was also instrumental in establishing and building the BenRiach Distillery Company.

The consortium says its mission is to be a wholly Scottish-owned, Scottish-based, and truly independent scotch whisky company producing excellent whiskies and offering them to the market at premium but affordable prices.

Lightness is a characteristic of most of the 1960s distilleries and Glenallachie is no exception. A malty undertone adds some textural quality to the palate while delicate fruits rise above.

One of the results of the US-fuelled 1960s whisky boom, Glenallachie was built in 1967 by Scottish & Newcastle Breweries’ distilling subsidiary, Mackinlays. It is notable for being one of the distilleries designed by William Delmé-Evans who was also behind Macduff, Tullibardine and Jura.

In 1985, Mackinlays became part of own-label specialist Invergordon Distillers which flipped Glenallachie to Campbell Distillers/Pernod Ricard four years later, during most of which it had been mothballed.

It is only very rarely seen as a single malt bottling – most notably as part of Chivas Brothers’ Cask Strength series.

In July 2017, it was announced that Chivas Brothers had agreed to sell Glenallachie to The Glenallachie Consortium – former BenRiach MD Billy Walker, ex-Inver House Distillers MD Graham Stevenson and Trisha Savage.

BILLY WALKER SPELLS OUT GLENALLACHIE PLANS
03 October 2017
The new owners of Glenallachie distillery in Speyside have revealed plans for the site after purchasing it from Chivas Brothers earlier this year.

New home: Trisha Savage and Billy Walker have high hopes for their new distillery venture
The newly-formed GlenAllachie Distillers Company, led by Billy Walker, Graham Stevenson and Trisha Savage, intends to release a range of ‘premium quality yet affordable’ whiskies.

Glenallachie’s core range will feature whiskies aged between 10- and 25-years-old, while a series of single cask bottlings and special edition whiskies will also be created.

In addition to purchasing the distillery and single malt brand from Chivas Brothers in July, the new company also acquired the defunct MacNair’s and White Heather blended Scotch brands, which will be rejuvenated with a variety of aged editions.

Walker, formerly MD of the BenRiach Distillery Company, which was sold to Jack Daniel’s owner Brown-Forman in 2016, said he and his colleagues – long-term business partner Savage and ex-Inver House MD Stevenson – aimed to build a ‘truly independent, Scottish-owned and managed’ whisky company.

‘The Glenallachie distillery has been in good hands and I’m delighted to have the opportunity to become the custodian and continue the development as a single malt.

‘At 50 years old, it may be one of the younger distilleries on Speyside but the range of casks we have warehoused is tremendous, with whisky dating back to the 1970s.

‘Our aim is to nurture this liquid, develop the single malt and a range of blends that will be admired both home and abroad.’

Walker has previously commented that the first release from GlenAllachie Distillers Company will be launched in March 2018.

Glenallachie distillery was built in 1967 as part of the 1960s US-fuelled whisky boom. Designed by William Delmé-Evans, the renowned post-war architect behind Jura, Tullibardine and Macduff distilleries, Glenallachie has been used by Chivas Brothers to provide malt whisky for its Passport and 100 Pipers blends
