The GlenAllachie Distillery Co has launched a limited edition range of its namesake Speyside Scotch whisky brand, under the name ‘The GlenAllachie Virgin Oak Series’.

The three-strong line of 12-year-old single malts explores the influence of casks made from different species of oak sourced from around the world. The trio includes a French Virgin Oak Finish, a Spanish Virgin Oak Finish and a Chinquapin Virgin Oak Finish from Missouri in the US.

Each whisky was first matured in ex-Bourbon barrels before being finished for about 18 months in the virgin oak casks. All three are non-chill-filtered, with natural colour, and bottled at 48% abv.

Priced at GBP59.99 in the UK for a 70cl bottle, there are about 1,100 cases of each expression, the company said.

The finishing casks were selected by GlenAllachie master distiller Billy Walker, who said: “With this new range, I wanted to explore and showcase the different range of flavours that can be created with different types of virgin oak.”

Walker led the acquisition of the GlenAllachie distillery by a consortium from Pernod Ricard in 2017.
