The Highland distillery was recently acquired by the independently owned BenRiach Distillery Company Ltd. from Pernod Ricard, allowing it to stay focused on producing some of the world's best Scotch without compromise.
GlenDronach was founded by the legendary James Allardice in 1826, just three years after the Excise Act was passed in 1823. Arguably one of the most unspoiled distilleries in Scotland, they are proudly using the same production processes today as they did in 1826.
Many of the distillery's unique attributes offer a distinctive character that you will not find anywhere else, and they are still producing the original, richly sherried style of single malt Scotch whisky associated with the distillery in its early days.
Preiss Imports will handle the U.S. distribution for this historical distillery, alongside the existing distribution for BenRiach. Initially, the 12, 15, and 18 year old (right) expressions will be available in the U.S. this fall, and a 33 year old expression will be available in early 2010.
