    Product Details

    The Glendronach distillery, established in 1826 by James Allardice and later rebuilt in 1852 by Walter Scott (not the famed novelist), has a rich history woven into the fabric of Scottish whisky heritage. It became part of the Grant family legacy in 1920, under Charles Grant, and was later acquired by Wm. Teacher & Sons, marking a significant period in the distillery's history. During the Teacher's ownership, Glendronach solidified its reputation for producing exceptional single malt whiskies, a tradition that continues robustly today.

    This exquisite bottle, distilled in 1960s and matured for 12 years, is a prime example of Glendronach's quality during the Teacher's era. It was specially imported by Ruffino for the Italian market, adding an extra layer of uniqueness to its story.
