Allt-a-Bhainne was constructed in 1975 by  the Canadian company Seagram. It has had several periods of closure during the last 40 years, but now whisky is in high demand, Chivas Brothers have the facility operating at full production. Originally designed to be operated by few, possibly even a single person, all the production equipment is in a single room. Allt-a-Bhainne is rarely used in the production of single malts and has not released an official bottling to date.

I have a great deal of time for I’m regularly in touch with them to source liquid to bottle and label for the monthly whisky club I run. Whiskybroker are gradually building up quite the warehouse of gems up in Creetown, and regularly release interesting single malts, single grains and indeed rums.

Allt-a-Bhainne 22 year old Batch 3

Posted 16 December 2017

Door number 15 offers us the slightly uncommon sight of Allt-a-Bhainne in the form of Boutique-y’s 22yo, no onto batch 3. Bottled at exactly 49% and with a label with lots of cows and a river of milk. It’s all in the name I guess.
