IN SHERRY CASKS
The Glendronach 100% sherry cask matured Single Highland Malt is a sensory experience unique among malt whiskies. A big bodied, heart-warming spirit that fills the mouth with luscious sherry maltflavours.
We only mature The Glendronach in sherry casks, butts and puncheons - casks that have previously been used to age sherry in Spain. When subsequently used to mature malt whisky, these casks impart a deep, dark gold colour and a delicious richness and roundness to the spirit. Alas, scarcity of supply and greater cost mean it is rare indeed nowadays to find a malt whisky 100% matured in sherry casks.
At The Glendronach distillery, where hand-crafted methods have remained unchanged since 1826, time has shown that the old ways make the finest malt. Our babbling burn, traditional malting floor, great wooden washbacks, coal-fired copper stills and stone maturation houses help to create an unmistakable malt whisky. Watched over by the raucous rooks who have stood vigil over the making of The Glendronach since distilling began, the whisky lazily ages until perfectly balanced and ready for drinking.
It may take a full 15 years to draw out The Glendronach's very
special sherry cask sweetness tinged with oak and peat smoke.
But the wait, as you will discover, is worth it.
