Master Distiller Billy Walker spends a lot of time in the warehouses of the GlenAllachie distillery - he inspects around 40,000 barrels. It's not a job for the faint of heart, but it's time well spent, as his efforts are rewarded by excellent results. The GlenAllachie Distillery resists the era of corporate mergers and consolidations and continues to focus, as an independent Scottish company, on the important things - creating outstanding whisky and enjoying life. This GlenAllachie underlines this tradition and is made only from the best casks. Billy Walker's journey began in 1972, and this bottling celebrates half a century in the industry.
