Distillery Bottlings

Posted 15 May 2018

Whilst the 2018 Spirit of Speyside Festival has been and gone, there’s still a few signs of its presence here – the roadside banners have yet to be removed, and many a bar person is looking like they need a short break to recover. There are also still a few of the Spirt of Speyside bottlings lurking at distillery shops and local retailers - the last drops of limited edition liquid awaiting those willing to take a punt on what is oft-times rather a stab in the dark at a single cask which may or may turn out to be notable.

When you construct a distillery from scratch, you have total rein over the spirit style and cask selection right from the get go – you might have to wait years to bear the fruits of those decisions, but there’s almost total freedom. Conversely, when you purchase a distillery (and likely inherit some stock), the style and profile, volume and breath of stocks you have to play with are all set. At least for the short term. Rest assured, a big part of the decision-making process for the purchase of Glenallachie in 2017 would have been the size, character and quality of its existing cask stock. Master Distiller Billy Walker seems happy enough with it – only a year later and the now ‘The GlenAllachie’ has just released its first core range of whiskies.
