Glenallachie Distillery was built in 1967 by Charles Mackinlay & Co, who operated as part of the Scottish and Newcastle Breweries at the time. It temporarily ceased production between 1987 and 1989, when it was purchased by Invergordon Distillers, who also owned Isle of Jura. A new lease of life followed under the ownership of Chivas, that acquired the distillery in 1989. Glenallachie distillery bottlings include a 12 Year Old and a 15 Year Old, while the Independent Bottlings comprise Connoisseurs Choice ( by Gordon & MacPhail), Dun Bheagan (by Ian McLeod), Provenance (by Douglas Laing), and Un-Chill Filtered (Signatory Bottling from cask). The house style is soft, elegant, clean, lightly malty, and with just a whiff of peat. An excellent aperitif.
